FREE In-School Program
This fast-paced, interactive program features a “continuo team” from Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra (cello, lute and harpsichord) that supports a melody instrument (the baroque violin). Students will see and hear how the continuo team collaborates in chamber and orchestral settings to form the harmonic and rhythmic foundation in baroque repertoire. The performance engages student participation and includes demonstrations of each type of stringed instrument. Ornamentation and improvisation are featured as important stylistic elements.
