About the Ensembles:

The ODU Collegium Musicum is a unique ensemble that brings together students and members of the community to study and perform early music from the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical periods. A variety of instruments are used, including recorders, crumhorns, viols and guitars. The ensemble recently acquired a consort of Renaissance recorders handmade by Thomas Prescott. The ensemble gives concerts on campus each semester and performs else-where in the Hampton Roads region. In addition, the Colleguim Musicum per-forms at the annual Department of Music Madrigal Banquet.

The ODU Madrigal Singers is a chamber vocal ensemble made up of music majors and students from other departments in the university. Singing music from around the world and from all time periods, the Madrigal Singers present performances in the fall and spring semesters. In early December, the Madrigal Banquets feature full-course Renaissance meals with costumes and lots of music. Each year, the banquets feature the food and music of a particular region.
