Fall 2021 Program Registration Extended for Strings only!


Are you a dedicated community, student or professional musician wanting to explore baroque repertoire and learn or develop your baroque playing style? Our goal is to encourage, support and expand the early music community in Los Angeles, and to be inclusive in our reach to give the maximum number of highly motivated players the opportunity to participate. For Fall 2021 we are primarily operating Covid-safe outdoor in-person sessions for members. See details below. We look forward to you joining us!


Strings and winds welcome! We have members playing alto and tenor recorder, baroque flute, oboe and bassoon; violin, viola, cello, double bass, viols, violone, harpsichord, theorbo and baroque guitar. Owning a baroque instrument is not required, but the pitch is set at standardized baroque pitch A=415hz (Temperament: Shifted Vallotti/Young). We recommend the Cleartune chromatic tuner app, available on Apple and Android app stores.
