Baroque and Beyond Festival: Hoff-Barthelson’s Celebration of Music from 1600-1750
Festival to feature music of great Germanic composers Bach, Telemann and Handel
Baroque and Beyond, Hoff-Barthelson Music School’s week-long Festival celebrating music composed between 1600 and 1750, takes place Friday, March 5, 2021, through Sunday, March 14, 2021. The Festival, featuring music of great Germanic composers – Bach, Telemann, and Handel – as well as masters from other lands, is a series of student recitals both in-person at the School’s 25 School Lane location in Scarsdale, and online via Zoom. Attendance is limited at in-person recitals; strict safety measures are in place to insure the health and well-being of all involved.
Baroque and Beyond is part of the School’s “Festivals in Style” that introduces students to music from specific periods of music. Students benefit from detailed study of period solo and ensemble works as well as opportunities to participate in audition-based festival recitals. Auditions are adjudicated by members of Hoff-Barthelson’s faculty, comprised of some of the nation’s most distinguished performers and educators.
Recitals are open to the public to attend free of charge. For more information, for a schedule of recitals, or to receive Zoom links to attend the recitals online, please visit www.hbms.org, e-mail [email protected], or call 914-723-1169.
