September 23–May 31, 2019
— Baroque Chamber Ensemble Class
Take a journey back in time to discover the distinct musical vocabulary of the Baroque Period (1600-1750) in Europe which featured such beloved composers as Bach, Vivaldi, Telemann, and Händel. Learn historically informed approaches to rhythm, ornamentation, and articulation that really bring this music to life. We have in-house harpsichord access and are open to intermediate+ keyboardists, singers, string players, and wind players. Thanks to our collaboration with the Early Music Society of Nova Scotia, there are opportunities to borrow Baroque wind instruments and Baroque-style bows for bowed instruments.
There will be 14 coached sessions spread through the 2018-2019 season, led by specialists selected to cater to the particular mix of instruments/voices in the group. Repertoire will also be specially selected to suit the group’s particular needs. Sheet music will be provided ahead of time for individual practice. Members are expected to also rehearse independently as a group/team and come committed and prepared to take advantage of this unique and wonderful opportunity, offered nowhere else in Halifax.
First class: week of September 23, 2018.
Participants: Ages 13 - Adult.
Faculty: Jennifer Publicover - Baroque flute; and guest artists.
Interested players should contact Jennifer through the Conservatory for more information. http://maritimeconservatory.c...
