Conducting Renaissance Polyphony


Dr. Richard Fitzgerald

Conducting & Chant

This presentation will offer a practical approach to the study and performance of fifteenth and sixteenth century polyphonic choral repertoire. Attendees will learn to discover the structure of a polyphonic motet and to amplify the expressive nature of this music through score study and use of the imagination. In addition, conducting strategies, rehearsal techniques, and basic repertoire will be explored.
