Profile With a focus on vocal repertoire from the Early Baroque, the Renaissance, and the Modern, the versatile Early Music Ensemble strives for cogent performance excellence in vocal music across this vast temporal span. The group frequently collaborates with composition faculty and department ensembles, from the Percussion Studio to the Baroque Ensemble. Concerts are quarterly.

Matilda Hofman, whose conducting has been described as having “a striking sense of purpose” and “taut and finely controlled” (San Francisco Gate) has a busy and varied performance schedule. She works regularly with a wide range of groups in Europe, and in California, which she has made her home. Matilda has performed at the Salzburg Festival, Berliner Festspiele, Holland Festival and Ruhrtriennale among others.
