This course may be repeated for credit.
Crosslisting: MDST 212

The Collegium Musicum is a performance ensemble dedicated to exploring and performing the diverse vocal and instrumental repertories of the medieval, renaissance, and baroque periods of European music history. Emphasis is given to the study of musical styles, performance practices, vocal independence (holding a line), healthy voice training, and musicianship. The class explores various cultural aspects of the production of music, looking at primary source materials in collaboration with manuscript experts and Wesleyan Special Collections. The online version of the Collegium Musicum (literally "company of musicians") will provide opportunities for creative teamwork and imaginative problem-solving, to arrive at new ways of joining voices. The course joins the long history of communal song, implementing community vocal work as a resource to tackle current health challenges and loneliness. Outreach projects will focus on singing with and for seniors with internet access.
