Music Director Search
We are seeking our next music director, to start September 2022. We are looking for someone with exceptional directing skills and a love and deep knowledge of Renaissance vocal music to build on Convivium’s long record of exploring the far corners of Renaissance choral repertoire and performance, in all languages and geographies.
The search committee will begin screening candidates on a rolling basis, as soon as application materials are received. Applications must be received by January 15, 2022. Finalists will be auditioned in winter 2022, and we expect to make the appointment by May 1, 2022.
For more details, please see our Auditions page.
Convivium 2021–2022 Season
Convivium Musicum is excited to announce that we have returned to in-person concerts this season! Thank you to all who joined us for our fall concert, Cornucopia. For information about the rest of our season, including our COVID-19 safety protocols, please visit our Upcoming Concerts page.
Watch The Measure of My Days
Join Convivium Musicum for an online concert exploring themes of hope, resilience, and community in the face of suffering, injustice, and isolation. The program, The Measure of My Days, explores how composers of the Renaissance drew on familiar poetry – the Psalms – to communicate these themes that still have resonance in our own time, especially in the context of the coronavirus pandemic and contemporary movements for social justice. To underscore this link, we include readings of contemporary poetry inspired by the program alongside our musical offerings.
This event premiered on Saturday, June 26, 2021.
Many thanks to Michael Barrett, John A. Carey, Ron Lacro and Jon Schum, Michael McDonald, and the Mass Cultural Council for their sponsorship of this program.
We are also very pleased to have been part of the 2021 Boston Early Music Festival Fringe concert series with an abridged version of this presentation. You can view this version of the program on the BEMF Fringe Concerts YouTube channel.
Watch Giardino Harmonio
We are also happy to share with you Giardino Harmonico: A Virtual Concert. This event premiered on Saturday, January 30 and is still available for viewing below.
Over the course of these last few months, Convivium has gathered both virtually and in small groups to make music and be in community with one another. We collected recordings and videos of our music-making — both our small outdoor groups and virtual projects — and have shared our project with you in video format on our YouTube channel. Please enjoy!
