“The aim of all good music is to affect the soul.” – Claudio Monteverdi

Each year, the Arizona Early Music Society welcomes to Tucson the best instrumental and vocal ensembles from around the world, performing on authentic period instruments and employing historical performance practice, bringing to fresh life a musical heritage that is both old and new.

We celebrate our thirty-third season by presenting acclaimed young performers with favorite ensembles from seasons past. Please join us on a musical journey through Europe and across centuries, from the ancient runic songs of Estonia to music from the 13th century Spain, to Elizabethan and Jacobean England.

Our concert venues in Tucson, Arizona this season are St. Philip’s In The Hills Episcopal Church and Grace St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, both with ample free parking, fully accessible, and ADA compliant.

The Arizona Early Music Society is a non-profit organization supported by ticket sales, grants from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, and tax-deductible donations from audience members and local businesses.
