The Arbor Consort is a semi-professional group of singers based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, performing both publicly and privately throughout the year. Formerly known as “Our Lady’s Madrigal Singers”, Arbor Consort was formed over 25 years ago as the official madrigal ensemble of the Michigan Renaissance Festival in Holly.
Today we are still performing at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. We also perform at several other public functions, including street carols during the holidays.
The Arbor Consort has been the Victorian Caroling ensemble for: The University of Michigan Hospital - Gifts of Art, Green Oaks Village Place Mall in Brighton, Hamburg Historical Museum in Hamburg, Tyme Well Spent Tea Room in Hartland, Ann Arbor Country Club, Barton Hills Country Club, State Street Area Association, Main Street Area Association and for Kerrytown Market & Shops in Ann Arbor. The University of Michigan Hospital is one of the favorite performances of several of our members. This is a time when we bring a little holiday cheer in the form of music to the residents of the hospital.
The Arbor Consort can also be hired for your group's event! We perform both Renaissance and Victorian Holiday music. We dress in authentic period garb and love to share music publicly and privately.
