Early Music Vancouver is a Canadian music arts organization whose main goal is to preserve the authenticity of historic Canadian music through live performance, education, an annual summer festival, and by historic instrument preservation.

The live performances that take place (such as the orchestra, opera, chorale, and smaller quartets, etc.)  reflect the original composer’s intentions at the time the music was written.

Early Music Vancouver has a partnership with the University of British Columbia (UBC) to hold various performances at UBC’s Chan Center for the Performing Arts, most notably during a three-week period in August thru September for the Early Vancouver Music Summer Festival. “Music for Queens” was the theme for this past summer of 2015’s Early Vancouver Music Summer Festival.

About the Early Vancouver Music Festival:

“The Vancouver Early Music Festival is one of the largest festivals of its type in North America and runs over three weeks in July and August every year. It is a superb series of concerts featuring faculty and guest artists from all over the world. This year the festival centres around music written for and about great Queens in history.”

In addition to educational programs such as lectures, Early Music Vancouver, the University of British Columbia, and the Pacific Baroque Orchestra work together to sponsor the Baroque Orchestra Mentorship Programme. Music students at UBC in the mentorship programme get the opportunity to work in the professional sector with baroque musicians who have moved to the west coast from other cosmopolitan areas in the nation and from around the world.

Excerpt from Early Music Vancouver regarding the Baroque Orchestra Mentorship Programme:

“Over the last few years, a critical mass of world-class musicians experienced in baroque period performance have also moved to the west coast. This is translating into a more active professional scene in this repertoire throughout the whole region. As a result, we feel that the time is right for UBC to provide students with regular access to these musicians and their skills. Students who add this knowledge and experience to their resumes will see more opportunities to work professionally wherever they decide to live.”
