About

Collegium Musicum is an ensemble for CWRU and CIM students that specializes in performing late Medieval and Renaissance instrumental music. The Collegium rehearses twice a week and generally performs once or twice a semester; alone and with Early Music Singers. Projects include an Internet2 exchange with Collegium from Indiana University, as well as performance opportunities at the Cleveland Art Museum.

This ensemble performs on replicas of period instruments (shawms, sackbuts, recorders, renaissance flute, vielle, rebec, selected percussion, etc.) from the Kulas Collection; available for student use.

Director: Allison Monroe
