As 2021 continues, we want to thank you for your continued support. We miss seeing you and singing for you and want you to know that no matter what, Convivium is committed to being a community of singers devoted to sharing Renaissance music.
The Measure of My Days
Saturday, June 26
7 PM Eastern Daylight Time
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. Please join us on our YouTube channel for the concert, followed by a virtual reception with the ensemble on Zoom!
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.
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!
We hope you and yours remain safe and healthy this season, and we look forward to “seeing you” virtually this spring.
