Personal Summary / Bio

Early Music Foundation (EMF) was founded by Frederick Renz and other members of the New York Pro Musica Antiqua in 1974. Upon its inception, EMF was invited to become Artist-in-Residence at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in New York City.

Named "a revered institution" by the New York Times, Early Music Foundation fosters public understanding and appreciation of western culture through the highest quality, historically-informed performances of music and music drama from the 11th through the 18th centuries.

Early Music Foundation consists of the primary performing enterprise, EARLY MUSIC NEW YORK - FREDERICK RENZ, DIRECTOR , and a recording label, Ex cathedra Records. Through its service to the field project "New York Early Music Central ," EMF promotes historical performances by New York City's community of early music artists; manages an ongoing, online event coordination calendar; and hosts triennial, city-wide performance projects under the "New York Early Music Celebration" banner.
