K-State community invited to join historical music ensemble through UFM partnership
Fall enrollment is now open for nonstudent participants, including K-State faculty and staff, in K-State's Collegium Musicum ensemble.
Beginning fall 2017, K-State's School of Music, Theatre, and Dance will partner with UFM Community Learning Center to offer this ensemble opportunity to nonstudent members of the greater Manhattan community. Enroll online through the UFM website.
For decades, the town-and-gown Collegium Musicum has presented historically-informed performances of music composed between the Middle Ages and the 18th century, utilizing musical techniques and instruments appropriate to the given era.
The Collegium Musicum and Friends will present a fall concert of chamber music from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, along with a choral/orchestral performance of the first part of George Frideric Handel's oratorio "Messiah" in the 1789 orchestration and arrangement by none other than Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Singers and instrumentalists are welcome to visit the UFM website for more information.
