Denison's Collegium Musicum Hosts Madrigal Feast To Celebrate Spring
Posted: March 26, 2001
Denison University's vocal ensemble for early music, the Collegium Musicum, presents a Madrigal Feast celebrating the start of spring. This evening of "gleeful entertainment, musik sweet and plentiful and a well katered feast" begins at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday (April 4) at theInn. Reservations are required and can be made by calling the Granville Inn at (740) 587-6222. The cost is $25 per person and $15 for students.
The Collegium Musicum, under the direction of affiliate instructor Stephen Caracciolo, is a vocal ensemble dedicated to the performance of Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque literature. For this feast, they will perform "Renaissance madrigals about love and drinking - some of them downright silly," says Caracciolo.
Caracciolo has performed choral masterworks with the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Juilliard School Orchestra and the American Symphony. He is also the director of the Bel Canto Singers, a chamber choir of professional singers in Columbus devoted to early music.

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.
