About the Monteverdi Project
The Monteverdi Project was conceived and initiated by Earl Rivers, CCM’s Director of Choral Studies, following the success of CCM’s Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 concert in November 2010. The Project has since engaged regional, national and international Early Music artist-performers and specialists to coach, rehearse and perform with fifty talented graduate and undergraduate CCM students in highlights from the collections of sacred music and secular music by the greatest Italian composer of the Early Baroque, Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643).
