REHEARSALS: Choral rehearsals will take place daily in a large rehearsal room in the hotel itself. There will be three sessions daily, each lead by a different choral director. Each day’s opening session will have an emphasis on vocal and choral technique.
REPERTOIRE: Works by Monteverdi and Purcell for choir and strings (to be confirmed); Legrenzi – Dixit Dominus dai Vespri op. 1; Alessandro Scarlatti – Dixit Dominus; a selection of 20th century part-songs from England; and more music (to be announced). This list will be up-dated nearer the time, when we can give you a complete list.
PERFORMANCES: The course will end with a concert in the spectacular chapel of the former Carthusian monastery Certosa di Calci. We will also give a performance outdoors under the Romanesque cupola of the Terme Tettucio in Montecatini.
