As the semester draws to a close, John Tyson directs his Renaissance Improvisation class in a concert that applies classroom learnings to the stage.

Tyson, a historical performance faculty member, shares his expertise in renaissance music and improvisation with students throughout the fall. By looking back on the exceptional improvisation of this era, students work to improve their own musical ability. With this recital, their studies come full circle.
