Musica is organizing three special projects especially for (young) artists, musicians and ensembles. Please forward and share this information with your students, fellow musicians and other possibly interested people.

International Petrus Alamire Lab 2015
In 2015 the theme of the Laus Polyphoniae festival will be Petrus Alamire. In honour of the occasion, the International Young Artist’s Presentation will be renamed the International Petrus Alamire Lab.

We challenge musicians and ensembles to take Petrus Alamire on. Both historical and contemporary interpretations are accepted. The selected artists and ensembles will be awarded with three days of coaching sessions and offered a performance opportunity during the early music festival Laus Polyphoniae 2015 in Antwerp. The coaching sessions will be led by composer-saxophonist and founder of BL!NDMAN Eric Sleichim and the Spanish soprano Raquel Andueza.

Summerschool 2015 – Masterclass in performance from mensural notation
As part of Laus Polyphoniae, Cappella Pratensis takes up the festival theme, performing directly from facsimiles of the Petrus Alamire manuscripts, brilliant examples of musical heritage made for European leaders circa 1500. Participants in this Summerschool will gain first-hand experience in performance from mensural notation.

The expert guidance by Stratton Bull and Pieter Stas (members of Cappella Pratensis) will be supplemented by special sessions led by specialists in the repertoire and the notation, including Professor Peter Urquhart, scholar and long-time performer from original sources.
