USC's Collegium–Dedans la mer: Music from the Shores of England and France

San Francisco Early Music Society

San Francisco Early Music Society USC's Collegium–Dedans la mer: Music from the Shores of England and France

Every summer, the San Francisco Early Music Society offers six weeks of workshops on historical music from the Middle Ages through the Classical era and beyond. Students of all ages and at all levels have the chance to study historical performance with the faculty of superb musicians SFEMS brings from around the world. Each week, workshop faculty give a public concert, featuring first-rate performances of both familiar and unusual repertory. The concerts are enthusiastic and inspired, always filled with the joy of music-making in a less formal setting, and often bringing surprises as musicians spontaneously interact and play off each other’s energy.

The Medieval/Renaissance Workshop is happening at St. Albert's Priory this year from June 30th to July 6th. On Tuesday July 2nd, the workshop director, Adam Gilbert, will present his USC Collegium's program that they performed at the Bloomington Young Artist's Festival.
