Welcome to The Arbor Consort!

The Arbor Consort is a non-profit vocal ensemble dedicated to the performance of a cappella Renaissance music.  We have been the featured madrigal singing group at the Michigan Renaissance Festival since 1982.  We also perform as costumed carolers during the holiday season.  We serve as strolling musicians for festivals, private parties, holiday celebrations, and much more.  The Arbor Consort’s musical director is the amazing Sarah Jane Rau.

Open Auditions continue Wednesdays in April 2017.

The Arbor Consort is holding auditions at the kick off of its Renaissance music season.  We are particularly looking for people who can sing alto or bass, but we happily welcome new singers in all voice parts.  Our members come from a wide range of musical backgrounds, from classically trained to shower-crooners.  Come to Calvary United Methodist Church, 1415 Miller Ave, in Ann Arbor, for our Wednesday rehearsals, from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm.  We will rehearse first, and show you what our group is all about. Then auditions will be held at the end of the rehearsal. You do not need to prepare a piece for your audition.  More information about being an Arbor Consort member can be found on our “Join Us” page.  Please feel free to contact president@thearborconsort.org or director@thearborconsort.org if you have any questions.
