One of our own, Soprano Francisca Vanherle Maxwell [see previous post], will be performing on Sunday November 8, 2015, at 4pm in the Julia Thompson Smith Chapel at Agnes Scott College in Decatur. You are cordially invited to Church Cantatas by Georg Philip Telemann (1681-1767) performed by the ensemble Philo Melante**, directed … by Francisca’s own sister: Sofie Vanherle, visiting from Brussels! Aaron Cain, baritone, will be the other voice.
Sofie studied at the Flemish and French Conservatoires in Brussels where she obtained First Prize diplomas for seven subjects, including piano , music history, and practical harmony. Since 2012, she is also an active researcher for “Trobador”, a research commission of the Royal Conservatoire of Brussels. The subject of her research is a collection of 150 manuscripts of sacred cantatas by G.P. Telemann that are held in the Library of the Royal Conservatoire of Brussels.
This research project called for the establishment of an ensemble that could concentrate fully on this repertoire, which led to the founding of “PhiloMelante” in October 2013. Its main purpose is to put the results of the research project into practise, and share it with a broad international audience.
