Denison's Collegium Musicum Presents Final Concert Of The Season
Posted: April 1, 2002
Denison University's vocal ensemble for early music, the Collegium Musicum, will perform its final concert of the season at 8 p.m. on Thursday (April 11) in Swasey Chapel. The program title, "Mostly Madrigals," aptly describes the ensemble's desire to present a light fare of secular delectables. The Denison Flute Ensemble, directed by Kristen Stoner, will accompany the Collegium Musicum as guest artists on this performance. This event is free and open to the public.
The group, directed by Denison faculty member Stephen Caracciolo, will sing works drawn from varied countries and time periods including English and Italian madrigals, amorous and humorous French chanson and arrangements of folk songs from the British Isles. James Clawson, a senior from Jeffersonville, is the student manager of the ensemble.
Caracciolo is currently on the faculty at Denison and at the Columbus Academy. A composer whose works have been published, recorded and performed throughout the United States and Europe, he has been awarded the prestigious Individual Artist's Fellowship in Composition from the Greater Columbus Arts Council. He holds degrees from Capital University and Westminster Choir College, Princeton, N.J.
Denison University, founded in 1831, is an independent, residential liberal arts institution located in Granville, Ohio. A highly selective college enrolling 2,100 full-time undergraduate students from all 50 states and dozens of foreign countries, Denison is a place where innovative faculty and motivated students collaborate in rigorous scholarship, civic engagement and the cultivation of independent thinking.
