The Cello Corner is running a one-day workshop for students: 
Introduction to Baroque Cello Playing

Saturday June 8th, 2019 from 2-6pm
Christ Church Highbury

This will be followed by a 60min Concert at 6:30pm in the same location. 
Diederik van Dijk (cello), Heather Tuach (cello), Yoko Misumi (piano)

The workshop is for students Grade 5 and up, but observers are welcome and encouraged to attend. 

 Why is it important to know about baroque cello playing?
- It expands musicality and is important for interpretation of baroque music.
- It opens doors for performance. 
- It’s fun!

Diederik van Dijk will run the workshop. Diederik is a baroque cello specialist, leading several baroque ensembles in the Netherlands and is one of the leading performers in authentic period style.  As specialist (and naturally playing on period instruments / bows) he also knows how to apply baroque techniques to the modern cello.

Some of the things that we might explore with the Suzuki repertoire include baroque pitch, ornaments and vibrato, improvisation, bow hold, playing without spike, baroque bowing techniques. 

Spaces are limited. We are offering an early bird discount until April 15th. 

Workshop (includes 1 child + 1 adult ticket to 60min Concerts at 6:30pm)
£75: Early bird (until April 15th)
£85: After April 15th

Observer (not including concert): £5 
I encourage you to attend. It’s going to be a fun and educational day. If you would like to attend, please email me and make payment (be sure to reference your name) to:
