The Schola Antiqua of Chicago is happy to announce that it has been named the newest artist-in-residence at the University of Chicago beginning in October 2006. Under the continued direction of medieval musicologist Calvin M. Bower, the Schola will present a series of concerts, lectures, and workshops on campus throughout the 2006-2007 academic year. Supported by the President’s Office and in partnership with the Rockefeller Memorial Chapel and the university's Music Department, the residency will focus on involving students, scholars, and the community at large in the Schola’s mission of preserving, studying, and interpreting a largely-unexplored canon of medieval chant and early polyphonic music that developed in Western Europe between the 9th century and the advent of the Renaissance.  
 
The Schola Antiqua joins the Pacifica Quartet, Eighth Blackbird, and fellow early music specialists of The Newberry Consort on the professional artistic roster of the University of Chicago. Details on all residency events will be found at http://music.uchicago.edu/?cal. Other information on the history, mission, and performances of the Schola Antiqua can soon be found at http://chantchicago.org.  
 
SAVE THE DATE: The Schola's first residency concert will be presented on Friday, November 10 (8 p.m.) at the University's magnificent Rockefeller Chapel. The centerpiece of the program will be a complete performance of the 'Ave Regina Celorum' Mass by the great 15th century composer Guillaume Du Fay. There is no admission charge for this concert, but a free will offering will be taken.  We hope you will save the date and plan to join us in November!
