Schola Antiqua of ChicagoArtists-in-Residence

$25 General / $10 Students

Schola Antiqua celebrates the life and contributions of musicologist and Northwestern University professor emeritus Theodore "Ted" C. Karp (1926-2015) with a program of music that reflects the wide-ranging areas of early music study that he touched in his fruitful career. One of the titans of plainchant scholarship, Karp can be found in debates about the genre in its early and late stages. The ensemble explores not only plainsong but also other areas of Karp's investigations from music of the troubadours to some of the earliest surviving polyphony in western music history. The program concludes with a full performance of Orlande de Lassus's sonorous Prophetiae Sibyllarum.

Schola Antiqua of Chicago also performed the same concert on Saturday, April 14 at 8:00pm at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel at the University of Chicago.
