Saturday, May 17, 2014 - 19:30 VivaVoce: Singing Extempore Redpath Hall

In the Renaissance, 10-year-old choirboys could make up music on the spot, music that sounded like real compositions! How did they do that? Musicologist- conductor Peter Schubert has researched the question and has trained members of VivaVoce to produce expert counterpoint on tunes made up by you, the audience. The program includes pieces by Josquin, Jacquet, Palestrina and Praetorius that show their improvisatory origins. (A collaboration with the Fondazione Giorgio Cini of Venice)

The next day, Sunday, May 18, McGill and SSHRC sponsor a free concert of student improvisers open to the public (Redpath Hall, 8:00 p.m.).
