K-State Collegium Musicum hosts Baroque Gala concert event at 3 p.m. Oct. 23
The K-State Collegium Musicum will present a concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 23, in All Faiths Chapel. The concert will include chamber music from the Baroque period and feature music faculty and student artists, as well as a complete performance of Antonio Vivaldi's choral masterpiece, "Gloria RV 589," with soloists, chorus and the chamber orchestra.
Collegium Musicum is K-State's ensemble devoted to the pursuit of historical performance practice. Collegium Musicum performs music from the Middle Ages through the 18th century following the musical styles and traditions of the eras in which the music originated — seeking to approximate how the composer may have heard the piece in their own time.
Collegium Musicum membership is open to K-State students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the local community.
