EARLY MUSIC AT UNT
With over 70 students participating every semester, the University of North Texas has one
of the largest early music programs in North America. Regular ensembles include The
UNT Baroque Orchestra (numbering up to 35 students on period instruments, both winds
and strings), The Collegium Singers, The UNT Baroque Trumpet Ensemble as well as
numerous chamber ensembles. Private instruction is offered on most baroque instruments:
Cynthia Roberts, baroque violin; Kathryn Montoya, recorder and baroque oboe; Allen
Whear, baroque cello; Keith Collins, baroque bassoon and dulcian; Lee Lattimore, baroque
flute; Paul Leenhouts, chamber music & director, Adam Gordon, baroque trumpet; William
Scharnberg, natural horn; Christoph Hammer, harpsichord and fortepiano; Jennifer Lane,
voice. The instrument collection is extensive, numbering nearly 300, so that ensembles
of nearly every era before 1800 can be assembled. Degrees in musicology with an
emphasis in early music performance are offered at the master's and doctoral levels as
well as a related field program for DMA and MM candidates. Ensembles have performed
to critical acclaim at each of the Boston and Berkeley early music festivals since 2001
as well as performances throughout Texas and surrounding states. The group also was
chosen to participate in the Missiones de Chiquitos Festival in Bolivia and Peru in May
2008 and was a winner in the 2009 & 2011 Early Music America Collegium Competition
(with a sponsored concert at the Boston Early Music Festival). Performances with other
notable early music specialists such as Monica Huggett, David Douglass, Ellen Hargis,
Colin Lawson, Bruce Dickey, John Thiessen, Kiri Tollaksen, Paula Fagerberg, Julianne
Baird, and Catherine Turocy have been a regular event. Major productions have involved
performances under internationally known opera conductor Maestro Graeme Jenkins in
collaboration with Fort Worth Early Music and Dallas Bach Society of Handel's Israel in
Egypt, Jephtha, Saul, and Samson and the North American premiere of Telemann's Der
Tod Jesu. Monteverdi's L'incoronazione di Poppea (2003) and Cavalli's L'Egisto (2007)
were presented with UNT Opera. In the spring we will be performing Handel's Theodora.
