One important element of the scholarship programme at the Balthasar Neumann Academy consists of the monthly workshops. During the work phases in Hamburg and Freiburg, scholars rehearse chamber works under the supervision of leading teachers and work intensively on technique and expression. They also receive instruction in such subjects as dramaturgy (programme planning), press relations, fundraising and legal aspects of music, alongside the more “musical” topics of Baroque dance, audition training and accompaniment of singers.
