Study with Sequentia

Since 1979 the members of Sequentia have taught hundreds of courses in medieval music performance, including summer music academies, workshops and masterclasses all over the world. Of the many young musicians who have attended these courses, a large number have gone on to professional careers in medieval music performance, and several of these have become members of the extended Sequentia performing ensemble.

Since 2005 Sequentia’s co-founder and director, Benjamin Bagby, has taught at the University of Paris, Sorbonne, in the context of a Master’s programme in medieval music performance practice which he directs together with Katarina Livljanic, director of the medieval music ensemble Dialogos.

Mr. Bagby also gives advanced private coaching and lessons to highly-motivated young professionals and ensembles.

Beowulf in Russia

On 8 September 2015, Benjamin Bagby will perform Beowulf for the first time in the Russian Federation, in the Tchaikowsky Conservatory in Moscow. Following this, Bagby will coach an ensemble of Moscow early music performers for the festival La Renaissance, in preparation for their Russian premiere of the 'Roman de Fauvel' on 12 September in Moscow. For this significant event, Bagby will also be working with Russian instrumentalists Ivan Velikanov, Danil Ryabchikov and French vocalist Marc Mauillon.


Bagby at Cambridge University

On 28-29 September 2015, Benjamin Bagby will be at Cambridge University, working with musicologist Sam Barrett on their joint project to reconstruct the 'metra' from the Consolation of Philosophy of Boethius. There will also be a presentation of works in progress for Cambridge musicology students on 28 September. For these sessions, Bagby & Barrett will be joined by Swiss vocalist/harpist Hanna Marti, who is working on a similar project involving the Metamorphoses of Ovid.
