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

Fall 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.

As soon as the Governor has issued timelines for the phased opening of our institutions and the Five Colleges have finalized plans for the fall of 2020, we will post information here about in person and/or online auditions, ensemble offerings and schedules and other details.  Thanks for your patience!

If you are interested in joining us in singing or playing in Collegium, Voces Feminae, Baroque Orchestra, Medieval Ensemble and all of our other options including Renaissance Dance and Seminar in 17th Century Song, or studying an early instrument, come see us at Painless Audition/Information Sessions or email.  Times and places for Fall 2020 will be posted and visible by clicking on "Auditions" to the left by early August.

All Early Music Program concerts are free and open to the public
