Phantasm named Consort-in-Residence at Magdalen College

As of August 2010, Phantasm has been named Consort-in-residence at Magdalen College, Oxford. The consort will be able to devote time to researching and learning new repertoire and shall perform several times per year in the College, collaborating with the College Choir (Daniel Hyde, Informator Choristarum), giving recitals in Chapel, and developing consort playing among Magdalen students. Thanks to the generosity of two Old Members of Magdalen, the College has acquired a full 'chest' of six Lu-mi viols, which students will have available to them for music making. During their residencies, Phantasm members will be offering tuition and coaching to interested students.
