Early Music Workshop with Palma Choralis from Brescia, Italy

Directed by Marcello Mazzetti and Livio Ticli

Pratt Hall, Mount Holyoke College

Friday,March 2, 1-4 PM  and Saturday, March 3, 10 AM – 1 PM

The Palma Choralis Early Music Workshop will consider several aspects of improvisation and ornamentation in order to understand why they are so essential to Renaissance-Baroque repertoire, and to get a sense of performance practice and processes typical of unwritten traditions. 

We will have a great time singing/playing from choir-books, original prints and manuscripts. Join us and experience firsthand what may seem like complex issues in a very simple and fun way!

Open to all voice ranges and modern or historical instruments, and all levels are welcome. We will work at A=440.  

Admission to the workshop is free and open to students, faculty and staff and community members

Please register by February 28th by  visiting this site:
