SingtheScore Extra with Robert Hollingworth

June 5, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


I Fagiolini – Stour Music

The last this summer in our popular fortnightly series of Zooms with Robert Hollingworth of I Fagiolini and guest.  Robert is a natural chat show host and these Saturday mornings are always entertaining and informative. He will talk about the music he has chosen and you will have a chance to sing it through twice. This week’s guest will be the musicologist Professor Laurie Stras who will talk about the (until recently) mostly unknown world of music in convents in 16th century Italy.

Professor Stras is co-director of two early music ensembles, Musica Secreta and an amateur female-voice choir, Celestial Sirens.  For over twenty years, her principal research focus has been the female musicians at the court and convents of 16th-century Ferrara, and she has complemented this research with performance activities with her two ensembles. Her monograph on the female musicians at the court and convents of 16th-century Ferrara, Women and Music in Sixteenth-Century Ferrara will be published in 2018.  She is also Professor of Music at the University of Huddersfield.

Robert is hoping to continue SingTheScore Extra in the autumn, but probably only once a month.
