Leonardo - Shaping the Invisible - Singing weekend with Robert Hollingworth Fri 22 Feb - Sun 24 Feb

  • Arts

This singing weekend celebrates Leonardo da Vinci’s 500th anniversary. Through vocal music we will consider his art and life, weaving music by Josquin, Victoria, Monteverdi and Howells into an approach that allows one to experience music through the prism of the art and vice versa. Singers need to be competent sight-singers with experience of relatively complex harmonies. Music will be provided in advance.

Robert Hollingworth, Anniversary Reader in the department of Music at University of York, was a chorister at Hereford Cathedral, set up his first solo-voice ensemble at the age of 16 and read music at New College Oxford followed by a year at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. In place of a conventional academic career he has spent 30 years directing vocal groups, notably I Fagiolini which he founded in 1986. The course is based on a new CD to be released in April, conceived with Leonardo specialist Prof. Martin Kemp.
