The Canterbury Tales: A Pilgrimage in Song
Profane, earthy, and occasionally pious, Chaucer's Canterbury Tales present the stories of the 14th century pilgrims journeying to the famed English cathedral. Jouyssance will enliven these tales with music both sacred and ribald by leading French, Italian and (of course) English composers of the late Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Artistic Director Dr. Nicole Baker

Teacher, conductor and singer Nicole Baker has served on the music history faculty of California State University, Fullerton, since 1997. A graduate of Wellesley College, Dr. Baker earned her MFA in vocal performance and her Ph.D. in music history from UCLA. She has conducted choruses for 30 years throughout Southern California, including ensembles at California State University, Northridge, and has led Jouyssance since 1999. She also serves as Music Director at St. Philip the Apostle Church in Pasadena.

Jouyssance Early Music Ensemble is a Los Angeles-based vocal ensemble dedicated to presenting early music concerts that entertain, educate, and inspire local communities.  Under the artistic direction of Dr. Nicole Baker, Jouyssance is recognized as one of the premiere vocal ensembles in Southern California, and is the only regularly performing vocal group in Los Angeles exclusively dedicated to exploring music before 1650.  With predecessor ensembles dating back to 1961, Jouyssance is also one of the oldest continuously performing choruses in Los Angeles. Today, Jouyssance performs an annual series of three concert programs in West LA and Pasadena, featuring medieval and Renaissance works both familiar and rare. In addition to the regular season, Jouyssance hosts an annual Early Music Singalong and performs outreach concerts at venues across Los Angeles and Orange Counties, including The Broad Museum and The Muckenthaler Center.  Jouyssance has released three CDs, Jouyssance Early Music Ensemble, A Tour of Christmases Past," and, most recently, "Cantiga: An Early Music Tour of Iberia."
