Early Music Ensembles

Image Picker for Section 0

​​The Early Music Program at Delaware, under the direction of Russell E. Murray, Jr.,  provides undergraduate and graduate students a unique opportunity to explore the world of early music through performance and private study. Students who have participated in the program have gone on to study in prestigious graduate programs and to perform with regional and nationally known early music ensembles. The department has an extensive collection of period instruments that students can use in their performance and study.

Collegium Musicum

​The Collegium Musicum provides instrumentalists and vocalists the opportunity to study and perform music from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The Collegium comprises a number of chamber ensembles formed around the interests and abilities of its members, providing the opportunity to learn new instruments and performance styles and to perform in formal and informal settings. The Collegium presents at least one major performance each semester, often concentrating on the music of a particular style, historic period or geographic region.

Baroque Chamber Ensemble

​The Baroque Chamber Ensemble is a select ensemble that specializes in music for winds, strings and keyboard from approximately 1600-1750. Students in the ensemble learn more advanced aspects of performance practice and receive coaching from faculty and area professionals. The ensemble usually presents one performance per semester, sometimes in venues outside of the University community.
