The Boston Camerata
Delving deep into the medieval music repertory, the esteemed Boston Camerata enlivens an important chapter of cultural history: the competing centers of France and Italy in the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance. Working in collaboration with MIT musicologist Michael Cuthbert, the Boston Camerata residency focused on the performance and rediscovery of works spanning the twelfth to fifteenth centuries, with all the inherent ambiguities and possibilities of creative reinterpretation this significant musical period provides.

Founded in 1954 by Narcissa Williamson at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, the Boston Camerata has toured extensively in the United States and abroad, including appearances at the Tanglewood Festival, Lincoln Center, the Cloisters, Smithsonian Institute, the National Cathedral, the Library of Congress, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Over thirty CDs and videos have been released and distributed internationally under The Boston Camerata’s name. Among the ensemble’s numerous awards is the Grand Prix du Disque. The Boston Camerata is frequently invited by institutions in the United States and abroad to participate in educational projects: masterclasses, lectures, residencies and colloquia.
