Early Music America has compiled this daily calendar to fill your Early Music Month with the joy of early music. Each selection has been carefully selected by a different member of the EMA Board, Staff, and members of the Emerging Professionals Leadership Council. and every one represents a musical moment that holds special meaning to that individual. We hope you’ll return daily to see what new selection and memory each day brings!

UPDATE: March 13, 2020 – what began as a celebration of Early Music Month, is now a celebration of you, the artists. We are asking artists and ensembles affected by cancellations and closings due to the spread of COVID-19 to submit selections of YOUR music so we can celebrate you accompliments.
