The course – targeted towards singers and singing students who wish to approach the technical and interpretative aspects of the Renaissance and Baroque repertory – features individual and collective classes. Part of the course will focus on sacred arias taken from oratorios and masses by J. S. Bach, G. F. Haendel, A. Vivaldi, A. and D. Scarlatti. Students may bring pieces of their choice taken from the sacred repertory (also by other authors) or from the list of suggested pieces that will be sent after registration. Registered students may also agree with the teacher on other pieces proposed by them.
