“The Quodlibet” – AEC’s new online and open forum for dialogue on all matters of Early Music”

Early Music (HP/HIP- – Historically Informed Performance) has come a long way in the last few decades and increasingly plays a vital role in higher education institutions. This period has seen many new challenges and whilst it is important to reflect and acknowledge our achievements thus far, we must now plan seriously for the future across both theory and practice. We are keen to welcome everyone to this series of online sessions, and hope to strengthen our community as well as connect across all generations of musicians. Teachers and students interested in historically informed performance and practice are warmly encouraged to join!

The AEC preparatory working groups members work on the preparation of AEC events on voluntary basis. The AEC Preparatory Working Groups are all formed by coopting active individuals in the relevant field of specialization within AEC member institutions. Proactivity, as well as geographical and gender balances are the applied criteria to guarantee the diverse and dynamic character of the groups, who should ideally recreate the diversity of AEC members institutions. Working group members are financially supported by their home institutions, which cover their travel and accommodation expenses to the working group meetings and to the actual event.
