Owing to curricular realignments and my spring 2018 sabbatical, Collegium Musicum will be on hiatus for 2017–2018. Though we will not be offering the course on an official basis, there are still many opportunities for you to participate in early music activities at FIU informally. For instance, the viol consort will continue to meet on its own, and our recorder players are continuing to meet as well. If you are interested in participating in either of these activities, please let me know so that I can put you into contact with these groups.
Collegium members and alumni will also be participating in concerts that include early repertoire both at FIU and in the community. In the coming days, these events will be added to our temporarily hidden calendar, but as a preview, here are a few dates for you to lock in:
Friday, October 28 at FIU: Soli Deo Gloria: An evening of music exploring the impact of the Reformation on choral singing around the world. All early choral music from the Renaissance and Baroque eras.
Friday, November 17 at FIU: Grand Harmonie. Boston-based ensemble that performs classical period music on early instruments.
Tuesday, November 28 at Palm Beach Atlantic University: Schütz’s Christmas Oratorio with FIU faculty and collegium alumni joining our friends at PBA.
