Friends of I Fagiolini Weekend

Facilitator: Robert Hollingworth

I-Fagiolini Friends return to Hawkwood after a gap of two years due to Covid. Come and join Robert Hollingworth to experience a wildly eclectic mix of music.

At a Glance

  • Singing with a top creative teacher
  • Intricate part singing
  • Wide range of repertoire

Places are now finalised but if you would like to be put on a waiting list in case of cancellation, you are welcome to complete an application.

What you will gain

  • Experience in part-singing
  • Confidence in sight-singing
  • Understanding the subtleties of music

We will kick the weekend off with supper together and an introductory session on Friday evening. Saturday morning begins bright and early (for singers) as we delve into later music than the previous early music focus of such weekends. Robert’s style is exacting but is lightened with humour and enthusiasm. There are frequent breaks for homemade biscuits and delicious mealtimes.

Saturday evening after supper we will enjoy informal musical sharing or socialising, depending on what participants prefer. There may be some sharing of archive Fagiolini film items.

By Sunday morning the pieces will surely be perfect (!), ready for the sing through a concert at 2:15 pm after lunch. Friends and family are welcome to come to the concert and stay on for tea and cake afterwards, departing around 4 pm.

The repertoire will be announced in due course.

Please note, places are determined by a good balance of voices.

"Music challenging but achievable. Robert has amazing energy – inspiring. Hawkwood is well-organised, good food, comfortable rooms – great! "
