Music Director: Loren Ludwig
Coordinator: Janet Haas
December 24th, 2016
Join coaches Loren Ludwig, John Mark Rozendaal, Jane
Hershey, and Zoe Weiss to explore some wonderful consort music by a
community of London-based composers. Though not as well known today as
Jenkins or Lawes, this early modern “Rat Pack” synthesized
the inherited musical language of Elizabethan polyphony with the sounds
of the Italian madrigal to create a new idiom of expressive andengaging consort music.
The workshop is open to all viol players including
beginners. In addition, pre-formed consorts are invited to begin now to
prepare music of their choice for the workshop focusing on the
composers listed above. You may register in up to two pre-formed
consorts, to be scheduled throughout the day. If you are unsure about
appropriate music for your consort, feel free to contact the music
director at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you decide to take advantage of this opportunity
to dig deeper into our repertoire by preparing it in advance of
coaching, contact Sybil Kevy (email@example.com) and let her know
who is in yourconsort.
Players not registering in a pre-formed consort are
also urged to register as soon as possible when the flyer comes out.
* The Rat Pack was a supergroup of actors originally centered on their leader, Humphrey Bogart, and including
Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop.
