Oberlin's Historical Performance Program requires students to not only study and perfect their chosen instrument, but also understand the cultural and musical history behind the pieces they perform. The program offers intense study of nine period instruments and a range of opportunities to perform on them. Applied study is available on fortepiano, harpsichord, organ, recorder, early and historical oboes, viola da gamba, and Baroque flute, violin, and cello. You can also pursue combined studies in historical keyboards and Baroque cello with viola da gamba. Coursework includes music history, music theory, continuo realization at the keyboard, performance practice, and historical performance ensembles.
