MUSIC PERFORMANCE ENSEMBLES

Merriweather Consort


Maureen Hynes, Director

The Merriweather Consort is devoted to the performance of Renaissance music on reproductions of early instruments, including recorders, crumhorns, viols and sackbuts. Under the direction of Professor Maureen Hynes, this popular group, attired in period costume, gives concerts each semester, on and off campus.

Students are given the opportunity to refine ensemble skills within the framework of historically informed performances. The Consort frequently performs in the New York City area and has toured throughout Europe, Canada, Mexico, Ireland, and the United States.

Rehearsals: Mondays 5-7pm
