He continues the training activities promoted by the Institute of Comparative Music Studies Intercultural teachers this year dedicated to polyphony and for teachers of Primary School Music and secondary levels.

Singing in several parts is one of the most common practices in the music world. She sings along to work, worship, communicate and have fun. This is done by creating peer groups or defining hierarchies and social relations and tell us something about the company, the histories and cultures in which they participate.

Musically, modes of organization of the parties with different combination techniques, as well as the harmonic choices, timbre and rhythm with which they all blew voices together are a real gym of creativity and sensitivity of the singers of the various parts of the world.

On these issues, the Cini Foundation devotes, for almost twenty years, an important event of study and show: Polifonie in handsfree, festival that has hosted choirs representatives of many local traditions of Italy (Liguria groups, Sardinian, Sicilian, Tuscany, Veneto, Friuli, Piedmont), and the world (the Balkans, the Caucasus, to the polyphonic Dong South China – in the photo above).

This year’s seminar will start therefore with a very rich collection of audio and video recordings kept in the Intercultural Institute of Comparative Music Studies.

Some of the materials will be made available for the workshop led by Serena Facci University of Tor Vergata, Gabriella Santini Professor of Music at the I.C. “TO. Gramsci “Rome) and Giuseppina Casarin, director of the choir Voices from Mestre world.

They will be introduced and tested educational courses designed to analytic listening, to choir practice and the creative reworking.
