Event description

Description

Join us on Saturday 15 June 2019 for a workshop with James Weeks exploring works from the later published collections of Monteverdi.

James should be well known to singers in the North East, having led NEEMF workshops on a number of occasions. As well as his strong interest in music of the Middle Ages, Renaissance and early Baroque, he is also a composer and conductor specialising in new music. In 2002 he helped found EXAUDI, now regarded as one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles for new music. Since October 2017 he has been Associate Professor of Composition at Durham University. He is much in demand as a choral animateur and tutor, and regularly leads courses for Dartington International Summer School.

The day’s workshop will begin with Registration, coffee or tea and an opportunity to collect the music provided, and the chance to meet up with fellow singers from Cappella and beyond. After the morning session there will be a hot buffet lunch, featuring dishes which would have been around in Monteverdi’s day, with ingredients known in Mantua and Venice: if you like Italian, you will not be disappointed! At the end of the afternoon session we aim to run through the works explored during the day in a performance to which friends and family are invited, to be our audience.
