Schola Antiqua presents a concert in connection with the opening of The Deering Family Galleries of Medieval and Renaissance Art, Arms, and Armor at the Art Institute of Chicago. The program includes music inspired by beautifully illustrated books of hours and early sixteenth-century German art, as well as pieces celebrating the theme of arms and armor, prominently displayed in the galleries. The women of Schola Antiqua will perform works from a rare thirteenth-century liturgical book on exhibit, which is known to have been associated with a Dominican convent.
Immediately following the concert, Jonathan Tavares--Associate Curator of Arms & Armor--will lead a short tour of the reinstallation.
Schola Antiqua of Chicago, Artists-in-Residence at the Lumen Christi Institute since 2008, is a professional vocal ensemble dedicated to western liturgical chant and polyphonic music before the year 1600. The ensemble is the 2012 winner of the Noah Greenberg Award, given by the American Musicological Society for outstanding contributions to historical performing practice.
