BC (Canada) Recorder Society presents a workshop on The Art of Polyphony: A beginner's guide to interpreting Renaissance music with Laura Kuhlman.

Polyphony: the style of simultaneously combining a number of parts, each forming an individual melody and harmonizing with each other. We'll learn how those parts fit together: finding phrases, finding cadences, moving between duple and triple meters within the same piece, and more.

Duets and trios will lay the foundation for our study of polyphony. We will use compositions by some of the best composers of the late Medieval to the Renaissance. If you are new to understanding this compositional style or want a brush up, you are invited to join the conversation and playing session.

Sweet! Chocolate and French Baroque Music
Ever since cacao arrived from South America in Spain, chocolate became the fashion of the day. Spanish chocolatiers introduced the art of how to transform the bitter beans into chocolate to the royal court in Versailles. French baroque music with its delicious flavors became to the ear what chocolate is to our taste buds: a symphony of ecstatic sensations!
Ensemble Caprice with recorder players Matthias Maute and Sophie Larivière, baroque cellist Susie Napper, David Jacques (baroque guitar) and percussionist Patrick Graham deliver a sparkling and ...sweet program!
Music by Joseph N. Pancrace-Royer, M-A Charpentier, J-Ph Rameau, Fr.Couperin et M.Marais.
