Collegium Musicum specializes in performing late Medieval and Renaissance instrumental music. These various ensembles, directed by Dr. Julie Andrijeski and coached by graduate students and guest artists, perform on replicas of period instruments (shawms, sackbuts, recorders, renaissance flute, vielle, rebec, percussion, etc.) from the Kulas Collection of Historical Instruments. The ensembles perform once or twice per semester in venues on and off the CWRU campus, and often collaborate in larger projects with other Historical Performance groups.

Director: Dr. Julie AndrijeskiHead of Historical Performance Practice


Collegium Musicum welcomes interested wind and string players from CWRU and CIM, offering the opportunity to learn a vast repertoire and unique style of music using period instruments. Contact the director for an audition during the first week of the semester.


Enrollment permissions are granted in the Student Information System (SIS) following a successful audition or during the first week of class. Once course permissions have been granted (before the Drop/Add period ends) students should return to their SIS account to register in the appropriate MUEN course. The Drop/Add Period ends on the 2nd Friday of each semester.


All performances held in the Maltz Performing Arts Center as part of the Silver Hall Concert Series or in Harkness Chapel as part of the CWRU Music Concert Series are live-streamed for free concurrently with the posted concert time. All concerts occur in eastern time.
