Early Music Ensemble

Early Music

Craig Trompeter, Director

Student Coordinator: Aimee Gonzalez

The Early Music Ensemble is an historically-oriented performance and study group of both vocalists and instrumentalists, led by Craig Trompeter, Artistic Director of the Haymarket Opera Company. Ensemble repertoire is drawn from 15th- to 17th-century sources, with special emphasis on historically-informed performance practices including reading from original notation, improvisation, and ornamentation. The Early Music Ensemble also provides a forum for undergraduate majors and graduate students in music who wish to explore musical traditions and repertories particular to their scholarly research.
