Personal Summary / Bio

The Center for Early Music Studies at Boston University (CEMS) is dedicated to the cultivation and dissemination of performance, scholarship, and new pedagogical practices involving music of the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical periods. Drawing on a renowned cohort of scholar/performers at Boston University and the presence of a professional resident ensemble, the CEMS supports a regular cycle of lectures, concerts, visiting artists, and workshops, as well a yearly conference and a new online journal. In addition, the CEMS collaborates with other departments and institutions to stimulate interdisciplinary research on early music and its place in the broader contexts of cultural history. As a nexus between performance, pedagogy, and scholarship, the CEMS will be at the leading edge of innovation in Boston’s “Silicon Valley” of early music.
