In Retreat Women in Medieval Music

  • The Telling began the In Retreat workshop series in response to the first lockdown in 2020. They were held live every Friday morning on Zoom and presented by the late, great mezzo Ariane Prüssner who sadly died before her time in May 2021.

    The workshops are beginner-friendly and being able to read a score is not essential.
