Why Support EMV?
Founded in 1970, Early Music Vancouver is one of the oldest and most successful organizations of its kind in North America. Having taken over administrative management of the Pacific Baroque Orchestra in 2016, EMV is now known not only as a presenter of world-class early music performances, but as a regional producer as well. We present and produce upwards of 25 concerts per year in the Vancouver area, and tour regionally with the PBO. Our interest in collaboration and the development of regional early and baroque musicians has cemented our place as one of the leaders of the early music movement.
EMV embraces both the traditional tenets of early music, and the contemporary ideals that have shaped the movement. With one foot planted in the past and one foot planted in the future, EMV delivers some of the highest quality classical music performances in the Pacific Northwest, all within an historical context. EMV is creatively innovative, historically conscious, and fiscally responsible. As such, the organization has seen immense and encouraging growth over the last few years.
