"What Attitude!: Chromaticism as a Means of Expression in 16th and 17th Music"
(Saturday, September 4, 2004)

Why did you select "chromaticism" as a theme for the workshop?:
"In this workshop, we will explore the use of chromaticism in sacred and secular music, both vocal and instrumental. English, German and Italian masters will shock and move us as we play the striking music of the late Renaissance and Baroque. Workshop director, Lisette Kielson, will refer to Eric Haas’ edition of Illicita cosa as a point of departure for the repertoire selections. Music by Frescobaldi, Farnaby, Stephan, Kerckhoven, Pachelbel, Tomkins/Simpson, Sweelinck."

Master Class with Ms. Kielson 
(Friday, September 3, 7:00-9:00 p.m., at Grace Presbyterian Church, 9301 N. Rodney Parham, 72227, phone 501-225-3274)

Ms. Kielson talks about master classes:
"A master class is like a public lesson.  There is an audience (players and auditors).  Audience members can really benefit from listening to the performers and leader's comments.  Often, points discussed relate directly to issues we all work on, whether technique or style.  Participants in the master class do not have to know their pieces perfectly.  Works in progress contribute wonderfully to this setting, providing a lot to talk about.  All levels of experience are welcome.  In addition to solos, people can  perform duets, or in small  ensembles."
