 We are thrilled to announce our 2017-2018 Melos Choir and Period Instruments Concert Season!

Enter the calming Medieval cloister with us, or the raucous Renaissance Tavern Hall! Hear the Cathedral resound with our full choir, talented soli and virtuosic period instrumentalists as we explore the breadth of beautiful music from the 12th-18th century Europe.

We start our season with Virtuosic Vocals where we feature our talent soli, choir and instrumentalist who will trace the roots of Bel Canto from the 12th-18th century on Saturday, October 14th, 2017.

A Star in the East III we are joined by members of Sine Nomine Ensemble for Medieaval Music as we present advent music, carols, instrumental dances and poetry from eastern and western traditions on Friday, December 1st, 2017. We will have a Pre-Concert Lecture at 7:00 P.M where a visiting scholar from Sine Nomine will speak to aspects of medieaval culture.

We then finish our concert season on Sunday, May 6th, 2018 with Sound Ground- Baroque Chaconnes and Ostinato Bassline, where we will be joined special guest lutenist Jonathan Stuchbery and Baroque Idol 2017 Jennifer Wilson.
