All are available for use by students in the School's many ensembles: Medieval and Renaissance Music Workshop, Cappella Antica, Collegium Musicum, and Early Music Area in the annual Historical Performance Academy with guest professors who teach in master classes and workshops for a two-week seminar in late May; recent artists have included violinist Stanley Ritchie and harpsichordist Kenneth Gilbert.
