Baroque and Beyond 11:30-1:00 Fridays at CMC
Come and play renaissance and baroque music. We will mostly do in depth work while leaving a little room for sight reading. Open to recorders, flutes, oboes, violins, voices, harpsichord, lutes, cellos, viols etc.
Madrigal Feast 1:00-2:30 Fridays at CMC
We will play satisfying quartets of English Madrigals, Baroque arrangements and seasonal music. Cut time and meter changes will be introduced through renaissance music. A good ensemble to cut your teeth on and a perfect opportunity to get comfortable switching fingerings.
Performance Ensemble 6:30-8:00 Fridays at CMC
Emphasis will be on preparing performances. The ensemble playing will focus on learning to respond to each other’s articulations, phrasing and improvisations. Our repertoire extends from the Middle Ages through to contemporary music. We will also be playing on a matched set of renaissance instruments with historical fingerings. Audition only.
