THE INTERCULTURAL CENTER PROMOTES THE BYZANTINE CHOIR WORKSHOP
Organized by the Piedmont-Greece Association
The Byzantine choir workshop is intended for adult citizens. It is not essential to know how to sing or know music.
PERIOD, MEETINGS AND TIMETABLES
There are 8 meetings, on Fridays, from 18.30 to 20.00, from 15 January to 4 March 2016.
OBJECTIVES AND PROGRAM
Byzantine chant, or Eastern Christian chant, dates back to the most ancient civilization that existed, that of the Sumerians.
It was sung in Italy only until the Middle Ages because it was buried by historical events.
It was thus forgotten but it is preserved in the lands of Orthodox tradition.
Byzantine chant can be heard today in ancient Byzantine monasteries and churches also present in the Piedmont area.
Byzantine chant or Orthodox chant, on the wave of the migratory flow in Turin, attracts all the Orthodox who live in Turin as well as all lovers of sacred chant.
The laboratory provides:
- the education of the voice in the 8 tones of Byzantine chant;
- knowledge of one’s own vocal expressive potential;
- the use of instruments of the Indo-European tradition;
- Why? In this way we would like to lay the foundations for the construction of a choir.
Irene Rotondale is a liturgical cantor, teaches vocal technique and choral singing.
You founded the Irini Pasi Ensemble group and are the first cantor at the Greek Orthodox Church of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist in Turin.
