From the morning of a bright Friday to an exquisite lunch on Sunday at the fabulous old Monastery, now a luxury hotel called Pousada de Belmonte, with concerts, recitals, activities, and full immersion Sessions, our program is quite promising.
The registration also includes an active visit to an Exhibition of Musical Instruments (historical, traditional and technological), an unique bag with the program and materials, equipment and technical support, Wireless internet, coffee-breaks (nice and diversified), lunches (2), a banquet-lunch (gourmet), selected visits, reviewed publication (in the book series 'Liranimus', which contains essays on Organology, or online), certificate of participation, perhaps a memoir-gift, publishers, makers, restorers, and participants stalls, networking opportunities and, essentially, time reserved "on purpose" for constructive discussions and exchange of ideas. Note: group meals are optional.
All activities are open, namely recitals, concerts, demonstrations, workshops (within a registration limit), and visits.
Early bird registration » 80€ for ANIMUSIC members (which has a symbolic registration fee of 20€, and no annual fees, no profit) / 110€ others (early bird registration until the 31st of August)
Regular » 120€ (ANIMUSIC) / 150€ (from 1st September)
Dayly fee » 40€ (does not include the banquet-lunch)
Banquet-lunch gourmet (for those friends accompanying, a special price) » 35€
Other costs: Portugal is one of the less expensive countries in Europe. To give an idea, an expresso coffee costs about 0,70€ in a normal coffee-shop (it's everywhere very good, this is the normal coffee in this country, similar to Italia), or even less in automatic machines. Meals may be around 10€ (complete with wine, etc), including nice fresh grilled fish or vegetarian food.
