Welcome to the Ancient Music Society of Victoria
Our mandate is to promote the performance and appreciation of Ancient Music.
What is "Ancient Music"? There is no formal definition of the term Ancient Music, but we regard it as pre-Baroque music in the European tradition. It encompasses Medieval and Renaissance music from 1000 AD through to about 1650 AD.
We hope to promote this music in a number of ways:
- Advertising and promoting performers and ensembles who are performing Ancient Music
- Providing a forum for the interchange of information about and between performers and ensembles through the Web and Social Media
- Seeking funding for performances and educational programmes on behalf of musicians and sponsoring organizations
- Directly sponsoring performances and workshops, with an emphasis on local musicians and students.
