A Tempo: Supporting Diversity, Inclusion in Early Music

ema_2_0.jpg

Diversity and inclusion have become important themes in the classical music world, as orchestras and other classical performing arts institutions explore how to better foster diversity, from the staff to the audiences. Early Music America recently announced its own initiative to examine these issues in the more specialized field of medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and classical performance organizations, and A Tempo this Saturday (11/16 at 7 pm) takes a look at its goals. Host Rachel Katz will speak with Patricia Ann Neely, chair of EMA's taskforce, who also plays viola da gamba with Abendmusik.
