Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy the common 16th and 17th century practice of playing vocal music as instrumental ensemble or combined with voices. The repertory will include Old World Spanish polyphony, such as the music of Tomás Luis de Victoria Cristobal de Morales and Juan Vasquez. New World polyphony’s will include music from South American Archives such as Puebla, Oaxaca, Sucre and will include composers Juan Gutierrez de Padilla, Juan de Araujo, and Gaspar Fernandez.  

In addition, the workshop will be spiced up with polyphonic arrangements of popular and folkloric Latin-American music, especially from Venezuela, Argentina and Colombia.

Coaches will include Colombian singer Camila Parias, Sarah Mead, and Janet Haas. There will be a short lecture-demonstration to illustrate the spirit of the workshop. Also, as always, there will be a class for beginners if there is enough interest.

Get out your rhythmic bow, your dancing fingers for tangos, joropos, and salsa, to enjoy the lively text and music of the Ibero-America.
