2021 Seminar Series: Join us on December 14

In December’s early music seminar, we will indulge in the art of ornamentation during the late Renaissance and explore the virtuoso variation technique of the early 17th century. We will explore the many examples of Sylvesto Ganassi (1535) and Diego Ortiz (1553) and learn to decode the variation technique of the 17th-century Dutch recorder virtuoso Jacob van Eyck.

Lewis will be assisted by Christopher Armijo, who will demonstrate the musical examples. Christopher is a multi-instrumentalist specializing in Baroque and Renaissance recorders, and a performing member of the Renaissance wind band Forgotten Clefs and the Baroque chamber ensemble Las Aves. Christopher earned the B.A. in music at Columbus State University (Columbus, GA) and the M.Mus. in recorder performance at the Historical Performance Institute of Indiana University. Currently based in Bloomington, Indiana. Christopher has also recently taken up professional video editing for major musical arts organizations with the videography company Arts Laureate.
