It's Giving Tuesday: Help Support Jouyssance into the New Year!

We are so grateful to all who have contributed to Jouyssance so far this fall, but we still need your help to start 2017 in a strong position to carry out our mission of passionate early music performance and community building.   We hope you will join us by contributing to Jouyssance as 2016 draws to a close.  All donations of $25 or more between Giving Tuesday (Nov. 29) and 5 p.m. on January 1st will be entered in a raffle to receive an "All Access Pass" for free entry to all remaining events in the 2016-17 Season!   The winner will be notified on January 2nd.  Donations can be made at or mailed to the address at the bottom of this page.  

Cantiga CD Update

Our meticulous behind-the-scenes work on our Cantiga CD is drawing to a close and we are preparing to send our recording to print!   Barring any last-minute issues, we should be mailing CDs to our Indiegogo donors before Christmas.   Missed out on the Indiegogo opportunity?  Don't fret!  We will be in touch soon with a selection of other purchase options, and the CDs will be available at our Twelfth Night concerts on January 7 & 8, 2017.   Meanwhile, to tide you over, click on the image below to check out a video sneak peek from our summer 2016 recording sessions!   

Jouyssance YouTube Channel

While you're checking out the video above, don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel to keep up to date on behind-the-scenes and concert clips.   Sharp viewers might notice that Jouyssance has actually been operating with two YouTube channel's for a short period.  In order to consolidate our accounts, we are slowly phasing out the old account (jouyssancevideo) in favor of the one linked above (Jouyssance Early Music Ensemble).  We hope you'll follow us and let us know what you think of our video offerings! 

Frohe Weihnachten! Merry Christmas!

Continuing our Twelfth Night tradition, Jouyssance will celebrate Christmas and Epiphany with a concert straight out of a Medieval/Renaissance Christkindlmarkt. Join us as we sing joyous music both familiar and rare by such composers as Hassler, Schütz and Praetorius. Orlando di Lasso, who toiled at the opulent Munich court of Maximilian II, will also be featured.
