Join us for an evening of medieval music, ranging from sacred choral chants and early polyphonic works to catchy 13th-century Cantigas de Santa Maria sung by pilgrims trekking along the Camino de Santiago.

The Honors College House Concerts series was launched when internationally acclaimed concert pianist Jura Margulis first encountered the Honors Student Lounge in Gearhart Hall and predicted that it would be a great space for enjoying music. He was right! In addition to hosting Margulis we have featured mezzo-soprano (and honors alumna) Sarah Mesko, Schola Cantorum, the Boston Mountain Brassworks, the Rhizome String Quartet, the Lyrique Quintet, jazz guitarist Jake Hertzog and, in collaboration with TheatreSquared and the departments of music, theatre, and African and African American Studies, an  Evening of Nina Simone. The beautifully appointed room provides an comfortable setting for our intimate house concerts.
