countertenor – cornetti

Teaching

Throughout the year it is my pleasure to teach in several courses, and give presentations on a variety of topics:

—————————————–

Cappella Pratensis Summerschool Aug 20-26, 2018

In the wonderfully historic city of Antwerp there is a week-long workshop where you can learn to sing Renaissance music from the original notation! This takes place during the early music festival ‘Laus Polyphoniae’ every August. The workshop culminates in a concert where all the groups present their pieces led by myself and my co-tutors: Stratton Bull and Pieter Stas. For more information - www.musica.be
