We see Seattle as a premier venue for Early Music.
Excellence and innovation: We value creative, fresh musical performances that meet the highest artistic standards.
Historically-informed performance: We value the performance of early music on period instruments in historically informed styles, and we believe that it enhances our understanding and appreciation, while fostering a new perspective on subsequent music.
Education and Outreach: We value educational and community outreach programs that further the awareness and appreciation of early music, and we seek collaboration with other organizations on projects that bring the arts to the broader community.
Community: We value and are committed to inclusivity and accessibility to a wide range of audiences and performers. We seek to achieve diversity in our leadership, collaboration, support, education and performance programs, and in employment opportunities. We value a community in which everyone can participate in the arts.
