Schwartz, Scott W.
The East Tennessee State University Collegium Musicum was an ensemble of musicians performing English and Italian music of the 16th and 17th centuries. The group was established by director Scott Schwartz to help musicians from the university and community better understand the performance practices associated with medieval and renaissance music. Collegium Musicum, the Latin term for musical guilds, first emerged from German-speaking states of Europe during the 16th century. It was predominantly tied to the church and the performance of contemporary sacred music. The East Tennessee State University Collegium ceased in 1993.
