Public Lecture B: 7-9pm on Bach’s B-minor Mass
Tutors: Colm Carey (harpsichord and organ), Philippa Waite (baroque dance)
This is a workshop for young pianists of Grade 8 or above standard. It will be a rare opportunity for pianists to work with a professional organist, scholar/performer, and a Baroque dancer, exploring two specific areas:
Learning to play the Early Keyboard Instruments to appreciate how Bach originally created his sound world, and
Learning some aspects of the Baroque dance, which is fundamental to the sound understanding of general characters in any Baroque compositions.
The participants can stay on to have individual lessons with the artists in the School of Music building.
Tutors: Fred Fehleisen (baroque violin), Philippa Waite (baroque dance)
The Ulster Youth Orchestra is to work with a Baroque Violinist from New York who will provide a lecture on Baroque dance as well as instrumental and ensemble coaching; dance workshop for musicians is run by Philippa Waite as part of this session. PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE OF FINISHING TIME.
We acknowledge with gratitude the sponsorship from the following partners: Belfast City Council, Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies, City Belfast of School of Music, and Ulster Orchestra.
