The Early Music Society of Victoria, (EMSV) Australia, was established in 1979.
Through its activities it encourages and promotes the performance and enjoyment of mediaeval, renaissance and baroque music.
Music written before 1750 is a particularly rich source for ensemble players of modest technique and this is the main focus of our meetings.
The society's aims are:
1. to promote interest in early European music and period style musical instruments, and to present musical performances in as authentic a manner as possible.
2. to encourage and provide facilites for amateur music-making of the medieval, renaissance and baroque periods on period style instruments.
3. to sponsor public recitals by both members and nonmembers who can establish a high standard of performance.
4. to keep members informed of Victorian early-music activities, principally through circulation of a regular email "What's On in Early Music" and this website.
Regular bi-monthly meetings workshop pieces for authentic-style instruments and singers from medieval, renaissance and baroque periods. Music is provided.
All members are invited to participate, either as singers or playing authentic style instruments such as viola da gamba (viols), recorder, sackbut, curtal, dulcian, shawm, cornett, harpsichord, baroque violin, baroque cello, lute, theorbo etc
Individual members or groups are also able to perform short items at the meetings.
Send concert notices in word format (not in pdf) to email@example.com (Jim Bland).
The What's On column is emailed to EMSV members only.About the EMSV
