WILMORE, KY—The Asbury College Collegium Musicum Vocal Ensemble will sing at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Sunday, Nov. 5 at 3 p.m. in Newport, Ky. Asbury College’s ensemble is the featured guest in the “Music at St. Paul’s Series”.
The Collegium Musicum Vocal Ensemble is an a cappella chamber choir comprised of 16-18 singers. Under the direction of Vicki Bell, professor of music theory, the ensemble will perform choral music of the Renaissance, established masterpieces of all periods and new works.
“We’re going to Italy in May and I want them to get experience singing in different spaces,” Bell said.
The group has performed at the Washington National Cathedral and its upcoming spring tour in May 2007 will include performances in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and the Baptistery in Florence.
