Cambridge Early Music is currently involved in an exciting education project alongside Cambridgeshire Music Hub and The Brook Street Band. The project - 'Getting a Handle on Handel' - aims to bring together young musicians aged 11-18 from schools in Cambridgeshire to broaden their knowledge and appreciation of early music. In two workshops held on 19th February and 16th March, led by the award-winning Brook Street Band, the students will immerse themselves in the music of Handel, Bach and Telemann, exploring Historically Informed Performance techniques including ornamentation, bowing and figured bass. The project will culminate in a short performance given by the young musicians during the Brook Street Band concert in the Howard Theatre at Downing College, Cambridge on 21st March.
Updates on the project, including photos, to follow...
