Lamento d’Arianna: The Story of the Italian Madrigal
This internationally recognized vocal ensemble, comprised of five male singers and a chittarone player, presents the evolution of the Italian madrigal, from the highly expressive polyphony of de Rore to the revolutionary madrigals by Monteverdi that shaped the Baroque era.
In remembrance of Dr. Taylor Johnston, the College of Music would like to recognize his vision, passion and support for underwriting the Early Music Series.
