Inception: San Diego, 1981

Background:

The San Diego Early Music Society is a nonprofit organization founded to showcase the musical treasures of Europe’s Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque periods, as performed on period instruments and in accordance with historical practice. The Society has presented concerts in churches, small halls, museums, and homes, settings for which the music was composed.

The Society's International Concert Series present five to six concerts each season. World-class vocal and instrumental soloists, ensembles, and chamber orchestras perform an exciting repertoire from various periods and countries.

The Old Masters Series (aka the Museum Concert Series) is presented six times a year. The SDEMS and the San Diego Museum of Art co-sponsor this series of Sunday afternoon concerts featuring local performers of early music in acoustically and visually perfect museum galleries.

In addition, the Society regularly holds workshops and house concerts and is involved with local public schools in a Project Outreach program.
