The academic course for renaissance and baroque voice affords young musicians the attainment of a 1st Level Academic Diploma in the Artistic and Musical Higher Education (AFAM) system, equivalent to a three-year university diploma.

 

The study plan is structured in such a way to prepare the young vocalists to acquire a mature artistic and philological awareness, including a comprehensive knowledge of its performance practice relative to the epochs and various contexts, as well as the compositional and analytical models within the musical language of the European nations in the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

The educational path benefits from the possibility of participating in the Erasmus+ program, allotting students some periods to study abroad while taking advantage of prestigious foreign professors’ presence at the School, for whom the same formula is applied.

During the Triennio the vocalists will progressively acquire higher level skills – including the adequate technique of postural and emotional control – necessary to successfully affronting the instrument’s most representative repertoire, both as a soloist and in ensembles, that culminate in participation in activities with the Schola Cantorum “Francesco Landini”.

Numerous performance occasions allow for the students in the advanced courses to “test” their preparation during a public concert, the participation of which is considered an integral part of the educational path.

Included among the educational goals of the advanced courses are honing relevant skills in an improvisational setting, in the digital music sector and  with a secondary common language.
