 Re: klezmer courses weekends in europe

The summer ist the best time... most festivals run longer than a weekend, though. The most intensive workshop for music is the instrumental week of the Yiddish Summer Weimar, this february also running a winter edition for professionals, then there are very good workshops in London (Klezfest), Paris, Kiev, St Petersburg which have in addition to instrumental music more focus on Yiddish culture in general. (Weimar does that, too, but not at the same time as the instrumental workshop). The amazing Jewish festival in Krakow (PL) starts including instrumental workshops this year. You'll be able to google for all of those. These workshops employ the best teachers in the field, for clarinet that's usually folks like David Krakauer, Merlin Shepherd, Kurt Bjorling, in Weimar for the first time Marcelo Moguilevsky (!), and even myself. The Klezmore festival in Vienna is extending its workshop program. The klezmerfestival in Fürth (south germany) is offering a weekend course in March where Merlin Shepherd and Alex Kontorovich are teaching, that's maybe closest to what you are looking for now. I'm teaching a weekend workshop in Göttingen in April, less clarinet oriented and more klezmer introduction though. In August there's a klezmerweek in Hasliberg, Switzerland, beautiful setting...The dutch duo is organizing weekends for amateurs near s'Hertogenbosch that often include klezmer orchestras (no focus on instrumental technique though), not too far from Belgium... there's probably more.

Hope this helps for a start.
