Join us online on May 17 at 5pm to not miss our second webinar of the year “When Choral Music isn’t enough”.
Sorry for this horribly provocative title.
But Robert Hollingworth’s idea is just to have a think about what happens when you’re singing music (often early music) that seems to have little or no relevance in the 21st century.
He will show a few different approaches (based mostly on projects of his own ensemble, I Fagiolini) and there’ll be plenty of video excerpts.
WHEN: Wednesday 17 May 2023, 17.00 CEST, Online
WHO CAN ATTEND: Everyone can attend. Participation is free.
