MUSIC 106 Early Music Ensemble (1 per semester/maximum of 8)
(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.
The Early Music Ensemble will meet for a single two-hour rehearsal each week. Extra rehearsals may be scheduled when circumstances warrant them, i.e., when visiting ensembles come to Penn State. Membership of the ensemble will remain essentially constant from one semester to the next. Vacancies arising when a student leaves or graduates will be filled as needed. It is integral to the ensemble's activities that faculty and students perform along side each other; thereby providing a unique learning opportunity for the students. A constant membership encourages performers' understanding of early music performance practice. The ensemble will give concerts on campus. Off-campus performances may be considered outreach opportunities and as valuable experiences for the students.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
