A brief history of Musica Antiqua

Musica Antiqua was established in 1972 as a project for an honors chamber choir at Weber State College in Ogden, Utah. The group has performed in eight plays with the Weber State Theater Department and the Unicorn Theater, on a live broadcast for KRCL Radio, and in eight recitals for the Temple Square Concert Series, as well as playing more recitals, parties and wedding receptions than they can count. From unique instruments and animal noises to courtly dances and sublime melodies, Musica Antiqua enjoys sharing medieval and Renaissance music with audiences of all ages.

Members of the group include:

Bitsy Schultz, harp, crumhorn and recorders
Marta Adair, crumhorn, recorders and percussion
Michelle James, mandolin, crumhorn and recorders
Twila Hansen, lute, viola da gamba, crumhorn and recorders
Penny Gardner, recorders and viola da gamba
Julie Gritton, soprano and recorders
