Introduction to Baroque Instruments and Period Performance: A perfect introductory half-day residency for middle school, high school, or collegiate institutions. The Music Director and principal performers from The Bach Sinfonia provide an introduction to the various sections of the full-baroque ensemble and issue of period-instrument performance. This 2-hour workshop includes comparisons of modern practices and instrument sounds with that of period instruments. This residency can be combined with other programs as part of a one- or two-day residency.

Advanced Performance Practice Techniques: A full-day workshop designed for students with an interest in or who are already studying early music. During the morning session, principals and vocal soloists of The Bach Sinfonia work with students in group or private lessons on standard literature or works being presented in concert by the Sinfonia. These sessions can be provided on either early or modern instrument with an eye to fine stylistic approach. The Music Director will also be available to work with conductors-in-training regarding the issues of performance practice and period performance. The afternoon session will provide students of early music the opportunity to perform alongside the principals of the ensemble in a mini-program of works studied during the morning. Student conductors will also have the opportunity for podium time before the ensemble. This residency can provide an opportunity to open the door to the public to see process become performance.

Other Residencies: You may work with the Music and Artistic Director to formulate a residency just right for your institution. We are happy to provide what is needed to help you move your program forward through hands-on exciting teaching of period style and practices of the 17th and 18th centuries.
