The Baroque Dance Ensemble was formed to provide an outlet for students to learn and perform 17th- and 18th-century dance. Featuring the Baroque Chamber Ensembles as part of the dance band.
The Baroque Dance Ensemble, created and directed by Julie Andrijeski, provides an outlet for students to learn and perform 17th- and 18th-century dance. In particular, this class welcomes musicians and any others who wish to experience firsthand how dance, and movement in general, can inform their music-making. The ensemble meets collectively twice a week and performs one to three times per semester; dance experience a plus but not essential.
The Baroque Vocal Ensembles (also known as EMS2), Peter Bennett, Director, provides an opportunity for CWRU and CIM students to explore the sacred and secular small ensemble vocal repertoire of the 17th and 18th centuries (from Monteverdi madrigals to Clérambault cantatas to Bach motets), singing one-to-a-part, mostly with continuo accompaniment. Performance opportunities include collaborations with the other CWRU HPP ensembles, gallery concerts at the CMA, and the production of videos.
