2021 / 9 TH EDITION

Early Music Day 2020, was a spontaneous gathering and offering of free live music, at a time where the world was put on pause. On Early Music Day 2021, we are asking participants to offer a celebration of Early Music right where they are, for their community, be it digital or not. How can we all bring music back from the online world into our everyday lives? What positive lesson have we learnt from 2020’s challenges? It is up to each of us to make something good out of our past early music path.

“Early Music Day is the celebration of Early Music, celebration of our lifestyle and dreams as HIP performers and listeners, and of the attitude we all advocate for, and that is – trying to understand the sources and the composers’ conceptions and interpret it on within the historical context with heart and soul in the 21st century. To be the Ambassador of REMA at this time of uncertainty in the world, is a gift. I am honoured to contribute to this platform by promoting the importance of early Music, making all different colours of period instruments more audible and visible and encouraging to breathe life into restoration just as early music breathes life into us with its restorative power.” – Olga Pashchenko, 2021 EMD ambassador.
