Phoenix Desert Pipes Presents:

Ut Re Mi: Solfège in Renaissance Music Virtual Recorder Workshop

Workshop Leader: James Chaudoir

Saturday, November 5, 2022 – 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm AZ/Pacific time
(2:00 pm Mountain, 3:00 pm Central, 4:00 pm Eastern)

Remember singing Do Re Mi from The Sound of Music? That is a song about “solfège” or “solfeggio”, a system of using syllables to learn the sounds of notes and scales. In early music, the first note was “ut”, not “do”. Renaissance music is filled with examples based on solfège, cleverly disguised in polyphonic texts and musical lines, or standing out clearly as a cantus firmus. Join us on a virtual adventure to learn about where solfège came from and experience how Renaissance composers cleverly wove it into their music. Players and singers of all levels and instruments of all sizes are welcome! Workshop pitch is 440.
