Berwick Academy is one of a handful of educational performance opportunities in the US that exclusively features period performance. Faculty and directors are top performers and educators in the field. Participants get unparalleled experience by working and living side-by-side with these artists and other musicians like themselves. Previous guest directors include Masaaki Suzuki, Rachel Podger, Monica Huggett, Robert Levin, and Lars Ulrik Mortensen.

Participation is limited to musicians who actively study and perform in period practice on appropriate instruments. Featured repertory comes from both the baroque and classical eras.

Thanks to the generosity of UO alumni Phyllis and Andrew Berwick, the Academy is tuition-free for all selected musicians. Room & board are provided for the entirety of the program.
