Singing the Madrigals of Shakespeare's Time

Shakespeare's plays are world-renowned, but what about the music of his time? We explore that era by singing English madrigals of the 16th and 17th centuries and learning about historical music practices. What better way to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death than by singing the music of his life? Moderate music-reading skills required. Each semester covers new repertoire.
