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 invite the AEC members to a series of three 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!
