Early Music Program

A faculty of distinguished performers and scholars at the Five Colleges, together with the program director, make it possible for students to participate in a wide variety of experiences in the study and performance of music of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the Baroque Era.

See "Events" for a current listing of concerts

Spring 2021

This spring most ensembles will not meet in person.  However, the Collegium will be offered online as a way to study scores, hear recordings, discuss performance style and maybe sing along!

Other, smaller ensembles may meet virtually using one of the emerging platforms for making music together over the internet.  Participants will need wired headphones or earbuds and preferably a wired ethernet connection.  Consult with instructors for more information.  

Online auditions for all early music activities will be by appointment this spring. Please email reisenst@mtholyoke.edu to set up a time to talk, play, or sing!
