Oct. 05--Music from the medieval period is set to ring through the Mitchell Auditorium on the College of St. Scholastica campus tonight.

The college's music faculty members will present the fall concert "25 Years of Musical Collaboration: A Pilgrimage to Medieval England and France" at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 general admission and $5 for students and St. Scholastica faculty and staff.

Bill Bastian, a tenor, said in a statement that the music for the concert was written between 1100 and 1450, which gives the concert a mystical ambiance.

"The opportunity to do medieval music in itself is inspiration enough," Bastian said.

Performers include Shelley Gruskin on winds, Marianne Connelly on recorders, Penny Schwarze on strings, LeAnn House on organetto, Jeremy Craycraft providing percussion and Bret Amundson and Bastian with voice. They all are current or emeritus members of the St. Scholastica music faculty.
