Early Music Performance

Overview

Over the past several decades, the performance of early music has undergone a remarkable transformation. What was once a highly specialized activity is now a major facet of professional music making, garnering the attention of an ever-growing, international audience. Specialists in early music are consistently involved in a dynamic range of activities, including solo and ensemble performance, research and writing, program planning, preparation of performing editions and historically-informed arrangements, and ensemble direction and teaching. USC Thornton’s graduate degree programs in Early Music Performance immerse students in all facets of the profession, ensuring that graduates posses ample knowledge and expertise to launch their own careers in early music anywhere in the world.
