MUS 101-03 - Collegium Musicum

1 credits (Fall and Spring)
The Collegium Musicum is dedicated to the performance of Early Music (the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, & Classical periods of Western European music history) using historically appropriate techniques and instruments.  It provides a hands-on way of learning about music history, exploring the beautiful but less often heard music of earlier periods while developing aural skills such as sight-reading. The ensemble includes both singers and instrumentalists, divided into several groups according to repertoire and experience level.  Each group meets for approximately one hour per week. Instrumentalists perform on the College’s first-class collection of replica period instruments.  Since many of these are ancestors of modern instruments, students can often transfer their knowledge of modern technique fairly easily. Both group and individual instruction is provided. 

Prerequisite: Ability to read music notation; no prior knowledge of Early Music required. Audition required.
S/D/F only.
Instructor: Brown
