Bulgarian Folk Music & Dance Seminar in Plovdiv, Bulgaria

The website for the 2009 Bulgarian Folk Music & Dance Seminar in Plovdiv, Bulgaria is now almost complete and contains detailed information about the

teachers and daily schedule.

The Seminar is especially designed for non-Bulgarians (or Bulgarians interested in connecting with their "roots" music and dance) who want a more in

-depth opportunity to learn traditional instruments, singing styles, and dance than is normally possible for groups or individuals traveling to

Bulgaria. This richly unique program couples the knowledge of teachers at the Plovdiv Music Academy with tradition bearers throughout the country.

Many classes will be taught by village "masters" from various regions in Bulgaria; the dance program, in particular, features different groups of

musicians and dancers throughout the week, teaching dances from their own villages. A Bulgarian language class will also be offered, as well as

optional evening social activities (such as the Plovdiv International Folk Festival which takes place nearby the Seminar).

(NOTE: This is a new domain for the Seminar)

A few things to note since last year’s Seminar:

1) This year's singing program will focus more on singing styles from Strandzha, the different subregions in Thrace, and Shopluk.

2) We've shortened class lengths by 15 minutes each because there just wasn't enough free time in the schedule.

3) We've added a Bitov ensemble class to give instrument students more opportunity to play in small groups.

There is now a special page, in the Bulgarian language, describing how Bulgarians may register.

Registration can be completed on-line. We are continuing our special 15% discount for EEFC members (this is another great reason to join the EEFC!).

Students from past years have raved about their experiences at the Seminar. (You can read some of their comments on the website.)

Please share this information with your friends, and, we hope to see you this summer in Plovdiv.
