The Med/Ren Collegium, Tom Zajac, director
JanSteen copyA Cabinet of Musical Curiosities
The MedRen Collegium is a favorite event for early music enthusiasts to enjoy the pleasures of a large mixed ensemble and unusual repertoire.  This year Tom has created a program filled with musical curiosities from the Renaissance. Viols and other strings, recorders, flutes, lutes, harps, dulcians, sackbuts, cornetts and all manner “soft” early instruments are welcome. Although much of the music is untexted, we invite singers to join us who would be willing to vocalize on a tenor part or a sometimes a top line. More details >
