Dear Sir, Madam,
In the summer of 2016 ensemble INSOMNIO offers music students a chance to participate in a course for performing contemporary ensemble music. The course is part of the Utrecht Summer School which takes place in the city of Utrecht in the Netherlands.
During the course the music students are guided by the experienced musicians of INSOMNIO to explore works by Boulez, Dessner, Schönberg and Reich.
We are contacting you because, as the contact person of a conservatory, you have immediate access to a large number of music students. Alongside this e-mail you’ll find more information on the summer school, as well as the link to the page on which they can subscribe. Could you spread this information among the students of your institute?
Should you have any further questions, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Conservatory students can join the contemporary ensemble performance course.
Offered by ensemble INSOMNIO as part of the Utrecht Summer School!
SUMMER ACADEMY COURSE
This course aims to develop participants’ skills and knowledge about ensemble performance of contemporary music. It contains studying some key works from the 20th and 21st century repertoire for sextet (flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano, percussion). Compositions by Boulez, Dessner, Schönberg and Reich will be used as a basis for practice and analyses, in order to achieve a better comprehension of contemporary music. Studying these works will be complemented by sessions exploring a wide range of topics in contemporary performance practice, such as specialist instrumental techniques, microtones, and preparation strategies, in order to develop further knowledge and skills relevant to performing this repertoire.
The course provides an opportunity for participants to work closely and intensively with INSOMNIO members on both individual and group bases. The support during the course is provided by the musicians and the conductor of INSOMNIO. They will focus on the ensemble interaction, rehearsal technique, individual musicianship, and of course the interpretation of the studied works.
