    What Members Say About Early Music America


    I’ve always thought that we, the early music community, are “Early Music America”: we’re all committed to making the music of distant times and places matter in present-day America. EMA is what we need it to be—a way of raising public awareness, a network of colleagues, a trove of resources—but only if we make it our own.
    Robert Mealy, violinist
     
    I am a founding member of EMA. It has always been great to know that operas, concerts, and workshops I am involved in will be cited and reviewed in EMAg and have been for over 25 years. This kind of thing is very important to early music professionals.
    Jennifer Lane, mezzo-soprano
