Chris Morrongiello, Renaissance lute

Lutenist Christopher Morrongiello, a former British Marshall Scholar, is a graduate of the Mannes College of Music, the Royal College of Music, and the University of Oxford, where he earned a Ph.D. in musicology. He was a prizewinner in the BBC Radio Two Young Musician of the Year Competition in 1993 and a recipient of a Marco Fodella Foundation Scholarship for studies and research in Milan, Italy, in 1996. In 2006, the Lute Society of America conferred upon him its first Patrick O’Brien LSA Seminar Lectureship. Dr. Morrongiello has been heralded as an innovative musical director who has a penchant for placing music in its literary, social, and historical contexts. His musical portrait of the Elizabethan muse and songstress Penelope Devereux, “My Lady Rich” (Avie Records 0045), has garnered much praise (“an inspired idea… a vivid and touching portrait,” wrote Allan Kozzin of the New York Times). Dr. Morrongiello is an adjunct professor in music history and musicology at Hofstra University and teaches lute and related historical plucked instruments in his studio in Long Island, New York.
