Dear Friends of Convivium,

I hope this message continues to find you well and safe.

It is with deep regret that I share Convivium must cancel our upcoming spring concerts scheduled for May 30 and June 6. We will postpone the performance of this repertoire to a later date when it is safe to gather. Convivium continues to gather virtually, preparing as we are able for a return to either live or virtual performance, and meanwhile finding solace in the connection.

As we think about the future of concert life in Boston and beyond, I ask you to join me in making a gift to Convivium. Your support will help ensure our future in an uncertain world.

In support of the continued financial well-being of Convivium, I am teaming up with Convivium Board Member and tenor Ron Lacro, and together we pledge to match contributions up to a total of $2,000 for donations received by June 30.

Additionally, I would like to invite you to participate and join us for a special listening session on Wednesday, June 10 at 7:00 PM. Join me and members of the choir from your own home as we listen together and discuss some of our favorite Renaissance repertoire from past seasons. This event will be held on the Zoom meeting platform, and a private link will be sent directly to attendees. Join me and make a pledge or donation in any amount before June 10 for an invitation to this special event.

With gratitude for your continued support, we will send you a professionally-recorded DVD of our Musica Poetica concert when you make a donation of $250 or more. This concert, recorded in 2016, features a collaboration with the Cambridge Dance Company and includes music by Byrd, Lassus, Gabrieli, Schein, and others (you can watch a sample, featuring Schein’s “Nu dancket alle Gott” here).

You can make a donation online at or by mail to:

Thank you for your continued support,
