Camerata’s distinguished rank stems partly from its longevity. Founded in 1954 as an adjunct to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts’ musical instruments collection, Camerata is now one of the longest-lived early music ensembles to be vigorously functioning in the present day. The Boston Camerata brings its program A Medieval Christmas – Hodie Christus Natus Est to the Jorgensen stage, performing the magnificent seasonal music of the Middle Ages to share the deepest, joyful Christmas message of good tidings and peace on Earth. The UConn Collegium Musicum, under the direction of Dr. Eric Rice (Music Department Head & Professor of Music History), will perform alongside The Boston Camerata for a section of their program.
