Gabrielle Bruney ’14 writes in with an opportunity to hear an internationally-known chamber music ensemble in what’s definitely the best venue around for that sort of thing:

Enjoy an evening of early vocal music performed by a world-renowned ensemble!

From the Orlando Consort’s website:

“Formed in 1988 by the Early Music Centre of Great Britain, the Orlando Consort has established itself as one of Britain’s most important chamber music ensembles, performing to the highest standards and renowned for its imaginative and innovative programming. Working with leading academics on music that has often never been performed in modern times, they have set new standards of performance, particularly with regard to the pronunciation and tuning of this fascinating repertoire. In recent times the Consort has also attracted praise for its bold programmes of contemporary music, jazz and world music, and for their outstanding education projects which are specifically designed to involve amateur musicians of all ages and abilities.”
