Early Music Hawaii Concert Season 2020-2021

Until live concert presentations are again permitted,
all presentations by local and mainland artists will be virtual.


SEASON OPENING PROGRAMS: Masters of the English Reformation

The launch date will be delayed due to the full lockdown on Oahu. We will be unable to complete the recording of this local presentation until restrictions are eased.

We remain committed to presenting this concert as soon as possible and will keep you up to date with progress. The rest of the season remains on schedule. Thank you for your understanding.

We are acutely aware of the devastating effects of the pandemic on musicians who depend on concert audiences for survival. In a typical year, 70% of Early Music Hawaii’s income goes directly to local and visiting performers. So that this may continue, we have designed the 2020-2021 Season around “virtual” performances by local artists and special online presentations by two fine mainland ensembles who were originally contracted to come to the Islands.

We are also concerned that you, our supporters on all the islands, should be able to enjoy this special early repertory in safety at home. Hence our season’s title.

Absent our ability to earn the same level of ticket revenue, your generous donations will be even more valuable. Please consider a donation online, and at our virtual concerts. We look forward to your participation online and seeing you again when live concerts resume. Thank you for your continuing support. – Ian Capps, President

Early 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 and voluntary contributions sustain these efforts and this website. More substantial annual sponsorships are always welcome. We aim to maintain ticket prices to individual concerts by EMH performers and leading US and international early music ensembles at a competitive level. Please click here to donate.
