Early Hawaii Musicarly Music Hawaii is a nonprofit organization established to promote the performance and enjoyment of Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music in our Islands, and to explore historical performance practices. We seek to encourage performers and audiences by 

publicizing concerts and workshops in Hawai'i and to provide a forum for groups and individuals interested in early music. Modest membership dues and voluntary contributions sustain these efforts and this website. When rare opportunities arise to bring leading international performers to the islands, additional sponsorships are welcome.

Check the concert calendar. Send us your own concert plans; we will list them as appropriate.

Benefits include a 10% discount on all EMH sponsored events.

             Musica Poetica

  "Musica Poetica" applies to each of the programs in the 2015-2016 Concert Series. Coined by 17th century Germans, the term compares composition to classical poetry and rhetoric in place of theory and practice.

  On September 19, our signature concert Musica Poetica paid direct tribute to this German concept. In November, El Siglo de Oro celebrates the poetry and drama of Spain; and in January 2016, Ensemble Hesperus plays live medieval music for screenings of two classic silent movies.
