The University of Arizona’s early music ensemble, Collegium Musicum, presents its spring concert on Sunday, April 5, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. The program, titled “Sacred Bodies,” explores mystical devotion to the human figure across confessional boundaries, featuring works by 17th-century convent composers and selections from Dietrich Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri (1680).
Collegium Musicum includes singers from the Fred Fox School of Music, the university at large, and the Tucson community. This year the ensemble performs under the direction of doctoral choral conducting student Erik Peregrine. Those interested in joining the ensemble should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
