ORB Workshop.jpg

A two day workshop for recorders and other early instruments (named after a passage in "Fontegara" by Sylvestro Ganassi, the earliest extant recorder treatise.)
This workshop is for intermediate and advanced players featuring a wide variety of renaissance, baroque (and a little 20th century) ensemble music with internationally renowned Early Music Specialists Laura Kuhlman, Gayle Neuman and Phil Neuman.

We will explore music by composers of various periods in both small and large group settings.

On Friday, July 12 at 7 PM at St. Michael’s Church in Kelowna and on Sunday, July 14th, at 7 PM, at All Saints Anglican Church in Vernon, Laura, Gayle and Phil will present a concert of early music on a wide variety of period instruments.  The concert admission is included in the workshop fee, and it is also open to the public for an admission price of $27 (regular)/$23 (senior/student).  We hope you will be able to attend with friends and family.

The workshop is intended for intermediate and advanced recorder players and players of early winds and strings. Some of the playing will be in separate sessions, and some in combination.

For lunch we suggest bringing a sack lunch.  Snacks and beverages will be provided.
