Voices of Music, Early Music Ensemble
Voices of Music is directed by musician-scholars Hanneke van Proosdij and David Tayler, who bring together a core group of the Bay Area’s leading specialists in period-instrument performance to present creative, accessible early music programs. Respected worldwide for its artistry, Voices of Music selects concert repertory to showcase its unique strengths in order to reach audiences in relevant and vital ways. Each season, Voices of Music presents concert series at three locations in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, in addition to several smaller concerts that feature the works of a particular composer or instrument. Voices of Music produces performance and educational music videos and since 2007 has been building a digital library of music from its concerts. This online library has transformed the way audiences engage with music reaching more than thirty-three million viewers with ages ranging from eighteen to thirty-four. As one of the largest classical music channels in the US, this free music video library is used in classes in high schools, colleges, and universities.
