Did you know that baroque instruments play on a different musical pitch than modern instruments? Musicians will refer to certain music in 415 or 440. What does that mean?

At this Masterclass with flutist Emi Ferguson and violinist Ariadne Daskalakis, two renowned musicians, attendees will learn details about performing on baroque instruments and how they differ from modern instruments. These two Juilliard trained musicians have been integral members of the Bach Virtuosi Festival since its inception. Join them for an interactive and insightful Masterclass.
