For details, including conference programme, fees, abstracts, locations and access to hotels, see conference website at https://bremf-nema-conference-
Keynote speakers will be Laurie Stras and Richard Wistreich. Other presenters include Anthony Rooley, Robert Toft, Gerald Place, Gawain Glenton, Viviane Kubo-Munari, Greta Haenen, Joe Bolger and Muthuswami Hariharan. Conference Director Deborah Roberts will direct a workshop.
It will be the first in a series of three conferences, each around two years apart. All have common objectives, which are: 1. To generate fresh research on each period, 2. To stimulate innovative approaches to informed performance practice based on the research, and 3. To encourage the same training for both professional and amateur vocalists as that given to players of period instruments.
