Saturday, November 18, 2023, 2-5pm “The Mission” at Church of Our Saviour 1165 Rio Rd E, Charlottesville VA (to the right of the main church building)
The 2023 Community Baroque Gathering is open to singers, bowed string players, and woodwind players. High school and college students are welcome, as well as adult amateurs and professionals. Bring your modern or baroque instruments at A440! This will be a rare opportunity to work on music from an English masque by John Locke and Matthew Gibbons, Cupid & Death. The clinicians for this event are baroque violinist David McCormick, woodwind specialist Ben Matus, and soprano Alyssa Weathersby. These three form the creative team behind EMAP’s February 2024 professional production of this same masque. This is an informal event where the clinicians will provide stylistic advice and historical context in a rehearsal setting. PDF copies of repertoire will be sent to participants prior to the event. (Note: we are not able to provide transposed sheet music for instruments not in C. All music will be in either treble or bass clef.) Registration closes Thursday, November 16!
$35 - Adults $15 - High School and College Students
