About the Workshop

This all-day workshop on Saturday March 4 is a masterclass for both amateur and professional vocalists who would like to take a deeper dive into the music of Baroque composer Heinrich Schutz.  The workshop will be led by Richard Giarusso, newly appointed Dean at the New England Conservatory of Music. Active as a conductor and singer, he has served as artistic director for the Georgetown Chorale, Voce Chamber Singers and the Maryland Choral Society. 

 

Through a combination of historical context and mostly singing, you will be led through the highlights of Heinrich Schutz's works.  We are also recruiting a continuo band of experienced lutenists, theorbists and viol players. Please use this website to sign up (for no charge) as an instrumentalist.

Held at the National Opera Center at 330 7th Ave, the Rehearsal Hall on the 7th floor will serve as the master class venue space.  Plan to arrive at 10 am for coffee, tea and light snacks.  Music stands will be provided. See links below for music that can be downloaded and studied in advance.
