We are...

a mixed period ensemble based in New York City devoted to transforming the concert experience by creating dialogues between old and new music.  We believe that music is music, so why not play the gamut?

 

Mixed period is....

playing on everything from period Baroque instruments (harpsichords and gut strings) to modern instruments (pianos, metal strings, electric amplification).

 

Our programs...

are designed to create dialogues between "old" (Baroque period to 20th century) to newly written works.  Our members have diverse training on modern and period instruments, as well as different modern genres such as bluegrass and jazz.  Some of us are composers, too.  A commissioned work by some of the most talented, skilled, and notable musical figures will be featured on every program we play.

 

Our shows...

will treat you to a vast range of the most engaging music and sounds from an array of instruments. We interact with you to break down that fourth wall. Because of this, we play in intimate venues, such as cafes, bars, galleries, living rooms, and the like. We love what we do - throwing fun and informality into the mix - and absolutely believe you will have fun with us, too.
