No prior historical performance experience required, but rehearsals will be approached in a chamber music setting as a chance to explore stylistic and cultural context. Period instruments will be utilized, pitch standard A 415 and A 465 Hz. Rehearsals are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2:30-3:45, and Fridays 3:35-6:00 or as arranged in MA B012.

Spring semester concert: Friday, March 22nd, 8:00 pm Auer Hall, dress rehearsal Thursday March 21st, 10:00pm- 12:00 am, Auer Hall. Concert date and dress rehearsal availability are a requirement for this course.
