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.
This workshop will take place on Zoom in two 90-minute sessions with a 30-minute break between sessions. Instructions on how to access the sheet music files and the Zoom link for the workshop will be sent to registrants by email before the workshop.
