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 2020

Click on 'Auditions' to the left to join us.  Early Music ensembles and lessons are open to students (often for academic credit), faculty, staff and the community.

At this point (March 11), we have had to cancel the April 15th Collegium concert.  Come to Grace Episcopal Church on December 7 to hear our program of music from Renaissance Florence.

The Euridice Baroque Ensemble's concert on April 16th is still going forward, pending any decisions by UMass to limit events and/or classes.
