We are delighted to announce a unique ensemble class series for all musicians. Join us and explore a wonderful variety of beautiful music from Renaissance to contemporary.
Live Chamber Music! All live interaction, no recordings. This means that you will hear Miyuki and John playing all combinations of two voices of every piece. We will play each piece several times so that you have the opportunity of changing instruments and/or voices, discovering all the voices and hearing the complete piece while playing your own part.
We will also play Baroque Trio Sonatas with harpsichord continuo. You can play both upper voices along with John playing the other. You can also switch to the bass voice and fill out the continuo along with the harpsichord.
Repertoire will include:
Renaissance Chansons, Madrigals, Dances
Baroque Trio Sonatas
Contemporary and Popular Music
All repertoires are selected to be friendly to
Recorders, Bowed and Plucked, Strings, Reed and Brass instruments
All instruments are welcome!
All sheet music will be at concert pitch
A=440 (A=415 for Advanced Ensemble Baroque Music)
We are offering Two Ensemble Classes:
Advanced Ensemble – for advanced amateur to professional levels
Intermediate Ensemble – for players who are comfortable with most of the
notes on their instruments
We will have Six Ensemble Meetings, 90 minutes each.
All sheet music will be emailed one week before each class.
