For the first time since March 2020, the Benedetti Foundation will be running in-person Benedetti Sessions this weekend. From 24 to 26 September 2021 there are live Benedetti Sessions at Saffron Hall. During sessions will be delving into the fundamental elements of Baroque music, focusing on a new arrangement of Geminiani’s La Folia, approaching the music in a way that inspires fun and enjoyment, a greater sense of togetherness, a true abandonment of caution, and an embracing of scratches, scrapes and unapologetic flair, as well as connecting to dance and rhythm, to harmony, bass, and improvisation.

These sessions are limited to people from counties around Saffron Hall, but worry not because the foundation's on-line session are returning too and for the first time all Mini Sessions will be available to registered participants on catch up for one month. The Mini Virtual Sessions are short, focused workshops designed to provide in depth and detailed exploration on a wide variety of topics, and if anyone is unable to attend live, participants can still register and will receive a link to the recording to catch up in their own time. Teachers and students can also sign up for a ‘Sessions Pass’ to get access to all their sessions. 

Full details from the Benedetti Foundation website.
