Opera NEO’s Early Music Instrumental Program is an exceptional opportunity for young professionals and advanced music students interested in historically informed performance practice. 


Modern players with no prior period performance experience

are welcome!


The program offers unique opportunities to study and perform Baroque music in collaboration with Opera NEO’s international faculty and the young singers in the program. In addition to one-on-one lessons and coachings with master instructors and chamber music work in various ensembles overseen by faculty members. All participants will perform in a fully staged Baroque opera alongside their faculty as well as an orchestra concert and several chamber music recitals. There will be opportunities to work in instrumental groups and collaborate with singers. Instrumentalists will also participate in master classes with the Opera NEO early music faculty from various disciplines and guest artists. They will also benefit from many of the regular activities of the opera program, including daily movement classes, yoga, tai-chi, career seminars, and performance classes. In addition to historic performance practices the program focuses on what it means to be a successful performer and how to communicate emotions, thoughts and ideas with an audience effectively.
