Early Music Ensemble

Overview

UC Davis Early Music Ensemble
Matilda Hofman, director (on leave fall 2017)

Fall Quarter, 2017, repertoire includes Bach’s cantata Aus der Tiefen (BWV 131), and will be directed by David Nutter, professor and director emeritus.

With a focus on vocal repertoire from the Early Baroque, the Renaissance, and the Modern, the versatile Early Music Ensemble strives for cogent performance excellence in vocal music across this vast temporal span. The group frequently collaborates with composition faculty and department ensembles, from the Percussion Studio to the Baroque Ensemble. Concerts are quarterly, with rehearsals held Mondays in the Ann E. Pitzer Center and Wednesdays, 7–9:30 pm, in Room 105, Music Building.

First rehearsal is Monday, October 2, 7 pm, in the Pitzer Center’s Recital Hall. Enter the building via the Northwest entrance only.
