The Department of Humanities and Arts & Events Programming present Musicians in Ordinary with an inspiring performance of 16th and 17th Century music in soprano and lute.

Soprano Hallie Fishel, soprano, is one of North America's leading interpreters of early music. She is in demand as a coach and lecturer on performance practice and the place of music in early modern culture at universities and colleges across North America. Institutions at which she has recently performed and lectured include University of Toronto, York University, Lafayette College, University of Syracuse, City University of New York, Trent University, as well as the Bata Shoe Museum and the Center for Reformation and Renaissance Studies. As well as performing in historically informed concerts, she maintains a busy studio of vocal students studying everything from plainchant to opera to jazz, and is the Music Director for Trinity Anglican Church, Port Credit.

John Edwards specializes in playing numerous historical plucked string instruments, from the medieval lute to the theorbo to the nineteenth century guitar. Though he plays continuo lutes with orchestras, Mr. Edwards has always had a love of song and is in high demand as an accompanist and coach. He is a Fellow of the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies at the University of Toronto and has given lectures and demonstrations throughout North America.
