Vox Early Music. Pagine del Seicento Italiano
Parma, Chiesa di San Rocco - 20-07-2017 ore 20:30
This concert is the result of the second work session of “VoxEarlyMus”, a three-year project focused on early vocal music. The project was developed within the Erasmus+ framework with several aims: to create a new international academic consortium, to develop research and production, to help students entering the world of work.
After the 2016 session in Bucarest, Conservatorio “Arrigo Boito” will host a new meeting and study session from July 15th to 25th 2017, involving about 40 European students and teachers, together with 10 students and teachers from Parma. This session will culminate in a concert, directed by M° Isaac Alonso de Molina, focused on Italian 17th century music. The concert will take place both in Parma, Chiesa di S. Rocco, on July 20th as well as in Urbino during “Festival di Musica Antica” at Salone del Trono in Palazzo Ducale on July 23rd.
The strategic partnership Eramus+ VOXearlyMUS 2015-18 aims to improve the quality and relevance of higher music education through creating a joint master program on vocal early music small ensembles, at the excellency level.
VOXearlyMUS Partner institutions:
• National University of Music Bucharest - coordinator (Romania)

Under this frame, prestigious teachers, students and professionals from European conservatories and potential employment institutions will gather in order to exchange good practices on innovative methods and approaches in teaching, learning, assessing and performing vocal early music, taking into account four important dimensions: internationalization, vocal pedagogy, artistic performance and professional integration.
VOXearlyMUS addresses both direct and indirect beneficiaries - as target groups.
More than 90 students - from 5 European conservatories - who have the skills, knowledge and a special interest in approaching and understanding vocal early music - will benefit of the intellectual outcomes of the transnational thematic meetings and will test the innovative teaching methods put in act during the 3 Intensive Programs (2016 Bucharest, 2017 Parma and Festival della Musica Antica - Urbino, 2018 Den Haag).
36 teachers from 5 European conservatories - who have a well-known expertise in the early music field - will be involved in the transnational thematic meetings and in the Intensive Programs - as the main activities of the project, elaborating 2 intellectual outputs: “Curriculum Design and Development Handbook on Vocal Early Music Small Ensembles” and "VOXearlyMUS Mastering Excellence", an electronic didactic support.
The project’s tasks and responsibilities will be evenly distributed among the partners. Every institution will play an active role in the activities carried out by the project and in the intellectual outputs' successful realization.
The newly formed consortium on vocal early music pedagogy will continue to provide expert teachers and students in order to make functional the joint master program. Based on the principles and the intellectual outputs, this master program will ensure a clear and formalized structure, internationally-oriented towards the students and the employment market.
