Celebrating its 47th anniversary in 2017, Early Music Vancouver (EMV) has a long-standing international reputation for the presentation, production and study of predominantly, but not exclusively, western classical music repertoires played on period instruments and using historically-informed performance practice. Led by Executive and Artistic Director Matthew White, it offers one of the most ambitious programs of its type in North America, presenting and producing an average of 30 concerts per year featuring internationally-renowned local, regional and guest artists. It has a Main Season that runs through the fall, winter and spring and an annual Summer Bach Festival as well as ongoing educational programmes that include the Baroque Orchestra Mentorship programme at UBC and a substantial Scholarship Programme for BC residents. It is one of the most active non-profit presenting and producing organizations in Vancouver. In 2016, EMV took on the management and administration of the Pacific Baroque Orchestra (PBO) as a fully integrated division of its operations. EMV will enjoy its 50th anniversary season in 2020.
