EnsAmble Ad-Hoc was created in Bogotá, Colombia by Francy Acosta (soprano) and José Luis Posada (lute & Baroque guitar) under the guidance and support of Early Music specialist Eduardo Vargas. Interest in further knowledge to better approach the repertoires they performed, brought its founders to the United States to pursue graduate studies in Early Music. The ensemble specializes in the performance of pre-classical repertoires, with special attention to Italian and Spanish music of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. The core duet may be joined by ad-hoc members according to the nature of each program.
EnsAmble Ad‐Hoc has performed in Bogotá, Colombia and also in the United States and Mexico. Some appearances include recitals at the Marinillla Religious Music Festival (Marinilla, Colombia), the Bloomington Early Music Festival (Bloomington, IN), the musical series of Trinity Church (Cleveland, OH), the International Festival of Women Composers (Indiana University of Pennsylvania), the cycle Música Antigua en Bogotá, and the Noveno Encuentro de la Canción Infantil (Mexico, D.F.). Francy Acosta and José Luis Posada hold undergraduate degrees in music education and graduate degrees in early music; combining their background in education, research and performance they also offer lecture-recitals, workshops and talks at universities and other educational institutions.
