We were pleased to welcome the Chamber Singers of the Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum on Tuesday. The Chamber Singers specialize in performances of Renaissance music, and the Rush Hour audience reveled in a stunning program of a cappella works by Renaissance masters Guillaume Du Fay and Josquin Desprez, among others.
We wish to extend special thanks to the Consulate General of France in Chicago for their support of Tuesday’s concert event.
