The Five College Early Music Program welcomes students, faculty and community members interested in auditioning to sing or play in one or more ensembles, including the Collegium choir; Baroque orchestra (modern string players are encouraged to try this); chamber music, medieval and Renaissance ensembles; and Voces Feminae. The auditions are "painless" and held at all campuses.
Consider beginning recorder, viola da gamba, lute or sackbut! We also offer instruction on period instruments (recorder, sackbut, viol, lute, etc.) for
modern players, in beginning ensembles and lessons. Credit is available for ensembles
and lessons at Mount Holyoke College, UMass and Hampshire College.
Amherst College auditions will be Tuesday, Sept. 3, from 6 to 7 p.m. in Music Room 7.
