Please join us for our monthly Sung Compline next Thursday, October 11th at 7 pm. Special guest Isacco Colombo will be in town with the Rose Ensemble and will join us with his Medieval Bagpipe and recorder. Plan to come early and stay a little longer as he adds to the mystery and enchantment of this evening service.
Born in Legnano (Milan), Italy, Isacco Colombo began his musical education at a very young age. After graduating with a degree in Oboe Performance from G. Nicolini Conservatory in Piacenza, Isacco focused his artistic interests on ancient music. In 1998, he enrolled at Schola Cantorum Basiliensis (Basel, Switzerland) and graduated in 2003 with a degree in Medieval and Renaissance music. Isacco now enjoys an active career as a freelance musician, collaborating with numerous ensembles, particularly with Medieval and Renaissance specialists in Italy and Europe, including Scuola di Canto Medievale, Florilegio Ensemble, Concento de’ Pifari, Curtes Francae, Accademia Viscontea, Ensemble Micrologus, and Renaidanse. Isacco Colombo is the founder and director of Collinetto wind ensemble.
