Columbia's Musick is a vocal and instrumental quintet dedicated to performing music from early America, especially the colonial, Revolutionary, and Federal periods. Combining musical excellence with historical authenticity and dramatic flair, Columbia's Musick is one of the few ensembles in the country devoted to this seldom-heard repertoire. The group is Ensemble-in-Residence at Boston's historic King's Chapel and is a member of the New England States Touring Roster, the New Hampshire Arts Council's Artist Roster, and the South Carolina Arts Commission's Artists-in Education Roster. Ensemble members are D'Anna Fortunato, mezzo-soprano; Thomas Gregg, tenor; Peter H. Bloom, baroque flute; Judy Bedford, baroque bassoon; and Richard C. Spicer, harpsichord and director.

"Not only was the music of the highest caliber, but the presentation was first rate...The scholarly research, the wonderful program notes, and the costumes and stage dressing all made important contributions to the success of the evening."
          ~ Thom Roach, Gore Place Historic Site

"…outstanding musical program…truly an extraordinary achievement."
