Biography
Schola Antiqua of Chicago is a professional vocal ensemble dedicated to the performance of plainchant and polyphonic music before the year 1600. An ensemble that executes this repertory with "sensitivity and style" (Early Music America), Schola Antiqua takes pride in providing the highest standards of research, performance, and education involving many under-served repertories in the western musical canon. The organization, now under the artistic direction of Michael Alan Anderson (Eastman School of Music), has received invitations to perform from the Indianapolis Early Music Festival, Chicago’s Newberry Library, the Chicago Cultural Center, the University of Chicago, the University of Notre Dame, the American Guild of Organists, and other institutions across the Midwest. In 2006-2007, Schola Antiqua was Artist-in-Residence at the University of Chicago, and currently holds an artistic residency at the Lumen Christi Institute.

Schola Antiqua has recorded four albums, three of which are issued on the Discantus label. The ensemble's music has aired on the international broadcasts of "With Heart and Voice" and "Millennium of Music" and has been reviewed by Fanfare, Early Music America, Notes, and the Journal of Plainsong and Medieval Music.
