Early Music Princeton (EMP), directed by harpsichordist Wendy Young, is an umbrella organization devoted to the exploration of early music for graduate and undergraduate students in all disciplines, as well as faculty and staff members at Princeton University. Members of Early Music Princeton study and perform vocal and instrumental repertoire spanning the centuries from Medieval and Renaissance to High Baroque, with a special focus on historical performance practices. EMP’ s ensembles include the Early MusicPrinceton Singers, Viol Consort, and Chamber Players (both modern and original instruments). EMP Unleashed! utilizes a variety of computer programs, baroque instruments, and the human voice, to reinterpret “ old” music in “ new ” ways.

EMP has a large instrument collection, including harpsichords, violins, violas, celli, a full range of viols, and Baroque bows, to name but a few, allowing for the exploration and performance of a wide range of repertoire.

Wendy Young is joined by faculty members Nancy Wilson (Baroque Violin and Viola), Arnie Tanimoto (Viola da gamba and Baroque Cello), and Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek (Soprano), all internationally renowned early music specialists.

We look forward to continuing to expand our repertoire and to bringing early music to both Princeton University and the community.
