Volunteers are needed to assist with issue design and layout, display advertising coordination, issue planning, and more.

We also seek those with an interest in having their research or early music related writing featured. 

The Society's newsletter provides a gamut of information for all early music enthusiasts.  Early Music News is published periodically during the October through June concert season.

For the 2017-18 season, the newsletter is to be distributed electronically to members via email in PDF format.  Back issues of the printed issues may still be available.  Please see the Early Music News Archive page.
