Primary and secondary school students (age 10-18) are invited to this introduction to baroque music of the 18th century, given by Debbie Diamond and members of Sligo Baroque Orchestra.
The music of Bach, Vivaldi and Handel – and less familiar composers – will be explored, with explanations and demonstrations on aspects of performance of this music that make it different from the classical period that followed it, and why it is fun to play. There will be opportunities to hear, hold and play some of the instruments of the time, and plenty of time for questions.
The session will be about one hour long. Members of the public may also attend.
