Ensemble Project Ars Nova (Ensemble PAN) specialises in the performance and recording of early music. The ensemble takes its name from Philippe de Vitry's fourteenth-century musical treatise Ars Nova (The New Art). Founded at the Schola Cantorum in Basel, Switzerland, by young American artists Laurie Monahan (mezzo-soprano), Michael Collver (countertenor and corno muto), and Crawford Young (lute), the ensemble made its debut at the Festival Estival in Paris in 1982. At its American debut at the Castle Hill Festival in 1984, Shira Kammen (bowed strings) and John Fleagle (tenor and mediƦval harp) joined the group. The Ensemble's first widespread recognition came with acclaim at the Boston Early Music Festival in 1987, followed by appearances on prestigious early music and chamber music series in cities such as New York, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Vancouver, San Francisco, San Diego, and Los Angeles. In recognition of the Ensemble's growing prominence in the field, Chamber Music America awarded the Ensemble a grant in 1989 to establish a three-year performance and teaching residency in Boston, co-sponsored by the Longy School of Music and National Public Radio affiliate WGBH-fm.

For the 1993-1994 season, its fourth in Boston, the Massachusetts Arts Council awarded the Ensemble a grant to continue its popular four-concert series, recorded and co-presented by WGBH and Longy. Arts Midwest has also awarded the Ensemble fee support for tours in eight states in the 1993-94 and 1994-95 seasons. With Crawford Young teaching at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, Project Ars Nova has maintained its European ties, and continues to appear at the best-known festivals and venues for early music in The Netherlands, France, Italy, Germany ,and Switzerland. The Ensemble has also recorded and broadcast for Radio Basel, Radio France, and Westdeutsche Rundfunk, among others. For the Columbus Quincentenary in the 1992-1993 season, the Ensemble performed programmes featuring works from the cancionero in the collection of the navigator's son, Ferdinand Columbus.
