The Ottawa Piano Festival hosted a harpsichord masterclass on November 9, 2019. Karen Holmes, early music specialist, a notable harpsichord performer and teacher, gave a harpsichord workshop for piano students. It was an opportunity for young pianists to try out a Baroque piece on one of these period instruments and a chance to get a feel for the way these pieces were intended to be played.
Twelve students, parents and piano teachers participated in the event. More photos of this event can be seen on our Facebook page.
Next master class: fortepiano with Frédéric Lacroix in November 2020 at the School of Music, University of Ottawa. Date&time TBD.
