Keyboardists and cellists are invited to apply for the Continuo: Harpsichord and Cello summer workshop at UC’s College-Conservatory of Music. Led by CCM Assistant Professor of Keyboard Michael Unger, the program runs June 5-7, 2017.
“This will be our third summer offering the Continuo: Harpsichord and Cello workshop,” Unger said. “I am excited that cello and harpsichord students have the great opportunity to collaborate with each other, to learn about continuo and chamber music techniques, and to experiment with Baroque performance practice questions through the hands-on study of eighteenth-century repertoire.”
Participants will study with Unger, who is a multiple award-winning harpsichordist and cellist, and visiting faculty member Adriana Contino, an internationally acclaimed cellist from Anderson University.
During the three-day program, students will participate in solo chamber music coachings, group performance classes on Baroque technique and interpretation, and seminars on Baroque performance practice and continuo technique. Students will also have opportunities to perform in recitals on June 6 and 7.
CCM’s 2017 Continuo: Harpsichord and Cello workshop is now accepting applications. The application deadline is April 15, 2017; enrollment for CCM Summer Programs is limited.
