Wordplay: Colby Collegium

April 6, 7:30 PM

Free

A panoply of puns! A manifestation of musical merriment! A fanfare of frivolous tomfoolery! Colby College Collegium will present Orazio Vecchi’s 1604 madrigal cycle Le veglie di Siena (Night Games of Siena), a work filled with witticisms, wordplay, and wholesome, wholehearted wizardry of all genres. Collegium will be joined by a quintet of early music professionals, including Shannon Canavin, critically acclaimed soprano and artistic director of Exultemus, one of Boston’s exclusive early music ensembles.

Shuttle service to the chapel will be available from the Eustis parking lot beginning at 7 p.m. and immediately following the performance.
