SFEMS Baroque Workshop
A Transalpina Sommerreise: Hamburg to Venice
Take a musical journey across the alps to explore the vibrant music cultures of two rich, interconnected, yet diverse cities in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries: Venice and Hamburg. Work with our internationally acclaimed faculty on exploring repertoires from both, accompanied with finely-crafted harpsichords, organs, and lutes. Take classes in performance practice, ensemble skills, chamber music, lute song, larger ensembles, dance, and enjoy the exquisite Brombaugh Organ in the Green Music Center’s Schroeder Hall. Recorder players, violinists, singers, flautists, gambists, cellists, keyboardists, lutenists, and double-reed players will be challenged and encouraged by our engaged and internationally recognized faculty. For early brass and others with a penchant for seventeenth-century music, work on repertoire of seventeenth-century sacred music from Hamburg and Venice.
The SFEMS Baroque Workshop opens its doors to dedicated musicians and emerging young professionals seeking to be inspired and challenged for a week of intense music making and enjoyable social exchange. In addition to the smaller ensemble playing opportunities, participants can join the recorder band, oboe band, the orchestra, and the brass and voice ensemble for large-scale repertoires!
