Baroque Tunes for Two Workshops

14 June, 2022

The Old Avoca Schoolhouse in Avoca, Nebraska will be streaming two on line “Baroque Tunes for Two Workshops"

for fiddlers, violists, cellists, bassists, mandolinists, and recorder players.  The Workshops will be on Tuesday, June 14, at 7 PM Central Time, and Wednesday, June 15, at 10 AM Central Time.  Different tunes will be played at each session. 


Each participant will receive a copy of our  “Baroque Tunes for Two” book, arranged for the instrument of their choice.  Just as in all of the collections in the Tunes for Two series these books contain the same tunes in the same keys making it easy for you to play with a friend playing another instrument.


This collection includes 27 lively pieces arranged for two players (melody and harmony).  

These curated gems include dance tunes from Belgium, England, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Prussia, and Sweden.  Well known composers are included (Bach, Handel, Telemann), as well as some surprises (Fasch, Gambarini, Roman). 

Volumes with the same tunes are available for fiddle, viola, cello, bass, mandolin, soprano recorder, alto recorder, tenor recorder, and bass recorder.


During the Workshop, we will read, play, and discuss various survival skills for these kinds of pieces.  A treble clef version of the sheet music for the tunes being played will be displayed on Zoom's screen during the workshop. 


There is limited enrollment, and pre-registration is required.  The fee for each “Baroque Tunes for Two” workshop is $25.00.
