Venice, Fondazione Giorgio Cini


From 19 to 23 October 2020, the Foundation Giorgio Cini, in collaboration with the Concordance, Irma Merk, and L. + Th. La Roche foundations, will devote an Early Music Seminar to the practice advised by Donati: a selected group of young singers, coached by Marco Mencoboni, the most renowned specialist in the field, will experiment and practice the technique, or rather the art of arranging musicians of late Renaissance or early baroque polyphony in the architectural spaces of the period.


The call is addressed to young professional or semi-professional vocal quartets and quintets, specialized in 16th-17th century music.
