Renaissance Studies Lunch Series
You are cordially invited to join the new Renaissance Studies Lunch
Series: come for the free lunch, and stay for the intellectual community!
We will be meeting throughout the semester in the Saybrook College Fellows' Room to eat, talk, and hear a presentation from a grad student or faculty member working on topics in or related to Renaissance Studies. We hope these lunches will help build connections between departments and programs, as well as providing a friendly and lively environment for the presentation of new work, evolving work, or work in any other stage of progress.

Cappella Romana Vocal Ensemble: Renaissance Encounters: Greek East and Latin West
The Renaissance was fed by encounters, both real and imagined, between Western Europeans and Greeks. Hear how Byzantine and Latin musicians of the 15th and 16th centuries captured these cultural meetings in music. Cappella Romana is a vocal chamber ensemble dedicated to combining passion with scholarship in its exploration of the musical traditions of the Christian East and West, with emphasis on early and contemporary music. For additional information see http://www.cappellaromana.org/
