Early Music-making Day for Singers and Instrumentalists with
and Philip Redfern
Saturday 28th April 2018
Inverleith St Serf's Church Centre,
1a Clark Road,
Edinburgh EH5 3BD
A friendly day of early music-making for singers and players of recorders, viols and other strings, cornetti, sackbuts, curtals etc (at A440). Small numbers of appropriate modern instruments are welcome - if in doubt, please ask. Open to members and non-members.
The day will start with registration from 10.00am for a 10.30 start, and finish around 4.30pm. Singers (led by Philip Redfern) and instrumentalists (led by Lynne Hope) will work separately in 3 one-hour sessions.
We will all come together for the final tutti session at the end of the day, to make a joyful noise under the leadership of Murray Campbell! The lunch hour will include the EMFS AGM, which all are welcome to attend (but only EMFS members can vote).
Please note that the three leaders will select appropriate music for the day based on the numbers and mix of participants - so please register now and don't leave it until the last minute! To register, please complete and post / email the attached form as indicated.
Murray Campbell is a founder member of EMFS and is the musical director of, among others, the Linton Singers, the Edinburgh Renaissance Band and the Scottish Gabrieli Ensemble - just a few of Murray's many musical activities.
Lynne Hope is an experienced workshop leader and founder of the very successful Dollar recorder workshop series. Lynne is based in Dollar, where she teaches recorder, woodwinds and keyboards.
Philip Redfern is an experienced choral director and teacher. Philip was instrumental in setting up the EMFS choir, which he leads in monthly rehearsals, and is Director of Music at St Michael's and All Saints Episcopal Church in Edinburgh.
New to EMFS events? We welcome a wide range of ability and experience to our music-making days. To get the most out of the day, we would prefer you to be a reasonably competent sight-reader with some experience of singing/playing early music notated in minims (e.g. in time signatures of 2/2, 3/2, 4/2). With advance notice, we may be able to provide simplified parts and other support for the less experienced - so please do get in touch if you are unsure.
