GO FOR BAROQUE……an early music workshop in NYC

Violinist Dale Stuckenbruck and Viola da Gamba player Lisa Terry

This March, longtime friends and colleagues Dale Stuckenbruck and Lisa Terry offer a workshop in Manhattan for experienced amateur string players, recorder players and viol players, where all will get a chance to explore Baroque music focusing on Baroque style, meter and emphasis. Inspired by their friend, violinist Janet Hoffman, Dale and Lisa have done a number of workshops and presentations in recent years and are excited to be working together again. The pair have a long history of playing together in large works by Handel and Bach with esteemed choruses and orchestras here in New York City.

“I’m doing music because I couldn’t live without it. I grew up in Germany until I was 14. I was surrounded by a love of music.” — Dale Stuckenbruck

“Since age 5 I have sung, played piano, cello and later viola da gamba. All my family are musicians, from active amateur to dedicated professional. I play and teach music all the time!” — Lisa Terry

The workshop will take place from 11am to 4pm on Saturday, March 4, 2023, at The Church of St. John’s in the Village, 218 West 11th Street, NYC 10014. All players of violin family, viol family or recorders are welcome. This workshop is great for those experienced in early music and also for those who are new to period style.

Lisa and Dale will demonstrate selections from the work of the day, an Orchestral Suite selected from “Le Journal du Printemps” by Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer, a German baroque composer and court musician who lived from 1656 to 1746. Fischer was an exact contemporary of J.S. Bach. Fischer’s music is in the style of French composer Jean Baptiste Lully, whose music influenced a great many German composers of the day. Both Bach and Handel were familiar with Fischer’s compositions and are known to have borrowed from his work.

Workshop attendees will explore the several movements of the Orchestral Suite (an Overture, followed by dance movements and character pieces) in large groups and small, to work on refining articulation, phrasing, dynamics and emphasis to create a stylish performance for each other at day’s end.

Saturday, March 4, 2023 11:00am-4:00pm
St. John’s in the Village Episcopal Church
218 W. 11th St, NY, NY 10014

Please bring your lunch; we will provide drinks and snacks.
