Type of Organization



The Society for Historically Informed Performance grew out of the Boston early music community’s desire for more performance opportunities, as interest in early music grew during the 1980s. Members of seven ensembles collaborated on a summer concert series in 1987, endeavoring to share in the work, and later to give a helping hand to other groups that were trying to get a start in the field. In the years since, the SoHIP Summer Concert Series has become a beloved tradition which continues to provide opportunities for new projects by New England musicians. 

SoHIP's mission is to promote and enrich public appreciation and understanding of historically informed performance of early music in New England, and to support the development of new projects and ensembles with ties to the region.

We look forward to many more years of uniting inspired audiences with beautiful music.
