Why do harpsichords often have two keyboards? How do you know which keyboard to play when? Why is the sound of a harpsichord so different from that of a piano? Why are the natural keys black and the sharp keys white? This class is a stimulating introduction to the harpsichord for students ages 8-14, with plenty of audience participation.
Italian harpsichordist Alberto Busettini is Maestro di Sala for Early and Baroque Music at Teatro La Fenice in Venice. He performs regularly as both a soloist and in ensembles in Italy and around Europe.
The class will begin promptly at 10:00 am. All participants should arrive by 9:45.
