Early Music Ensemble

Dedicated to exploring vocal and instrumental repertories before 1750, the Early Music Ensemble offers both a chamber experience and an introduction to historically-informed performance to undergraduates and graduate students alike.  Members of EME have the opportunity to play historical instruments, from rebec and viola da gamba to recorders and percussion, and to learn new styles and techniques appropriate to music of the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods.  EME presents two full-length concerts a year with occasional performances in the community.
