Community Baroque Gathering 2020
Join Early Music Access Project for our 3rd Annual Community Baroque Gathering! This event is suitable for advanced high school and college students, adult amateurs, and professional musicians. All voice types are encouraged to attend; both modern and baroque instruments are welcomed (we will play at A=440).
Though all are welcome to attend, special technique classes and sectional rehearsals will be geared towards string players, recorder players, and vocalists. Continuo players (harpsichord and plucked instruments) are also needed and may be eligible for free tuition!
Participants will be rehearsing and performing excerpts from John Blow's opera Venus and Adonis, widely considered to be the first English opera. Music will be available in early December. This event is designed to bring together early music lovers and performers for a day of exploration. Coaches David McCormick, Sian Ricketts, and Tracy Cowart will provide stylistic advice and historical context for the music to be rehearsed and performed.
