Houston Early Music presents historically-informed performances of music from the Medieval through Classical periods by internationally-recognized artists.


We endeavor to make Early Music relevant in the 21st Century by promoting connections to, an appreciation for, and an understanding of the importance and richness of this music: a benefit to both current and future generations.


Houston Early Music is the city’s only presenting organization providing audiences the opportunity to experience world-class historically informed performances of music from the Medieval through early Classical periods. We cover a millennium of great works: from between 800-1800.

Initially formed in 1965 as the Houston Harpsichord Society, by a small group of harpsichord enthusiasts who met in members' homes, the organization was officially incorporated as a professional organization in 1968. From this humble beginning, it has grown to become an organization that now curates performance opportunities for major, internationally-renowned early music soloists and ensembles offered in annual concert seasons.
