Worcestershire Early Music aims to promote the understanding and enjoyment of music composed before 1750, throughout Worcestershire and the West Midlands.
Our audiences range from young people to senior citizens. Our concerts and events showcase early music performed by both talented professional musicians and enthusiastic, skilled amateurs. Our outreach programmes get young people performing in ensembles, baroque orchestras and choirs in front of live audiences. Our outreach work with adults also encourages them to participate as much as possible. We collaborate with other musical organisations in the area, including Birmingham Conservatoire Early Music Department and the Elgar School of Music.
The group is run by local volunteers and is largely funded by sales of concert tickets, donations and charitable grants. WEM is now a charity and so can claim gift aid on your donations – please consider becoming a Friend!
If you would like to know more about our work or our concerts, please sign up to receive our newsletter by email.
It helps us enormously if our supporters advertise information about us to family and friends, so please follow us on Facebook, forward our newsletters to a friend – or why not invite a friend to come along with you to one of our concerts?
We look forward to seeing you at an event very soon,
Barbara, Jill, Ross and Phil
