For 40 years, Early Music Seattle has brought the finest early music ensembles in the world to Seattle, nurtured the development of local and regional ensembles, and educated thousands of young people and adults at a time when music and the arts are as important in our lives as they ever have been.

Early Music Seattle presents two sets of concerts through its International Series and Seattle Baroque Orchestra series. The International Series presents the best of early music specialists from North America and beyond, offering a huge and varied repertoire spanning the centuries from 1100 to 1800. Seattle Baroque Orchestra (SBO), directed by Alexander Weimann, unites eminent professional musicians from the Pacific Northwest and farther afield to present orchestral music from the 17th century.

Early Music Seattle educational programs focus on students who often have less access to music education; under-served groups include students who are English Language Learners (ELL), eligible for Free or Reduced Lunch (FRL) and youth of color. Programs help students develop hands-on musical skills and interact with experienced artists who can bring history to life through music.

Early Music Seattle's commitment to community also includes a cohort of more than 100 amateur adult musicians, which is the largest group in the United States that partakes in the early music experience both as performers and audience members.
Early Music Seattle expresses gratitude to a pool of current and former board members who contributed to the $8,000 match fund for GiveBIG 2017. We pay tribute to our board members, who work tirelessly on behalf of early music in Seattle, and to our many long-time subscribers and donors, without whom Seattle's cultural would be much poorer.
