Indianapolis Early Music Festival

Frank & Katrina Basile Theater, Glick Indiana History Center, 450 West Ohio Street


(June – July) Also known as the Festival Music Society of Indiana, Indianapolis Early Music was initiated in 1966 and is the oldest continuing presenter of its kind in the country. Featured works include those by illustrious composers like Vivaldi, Corelli, Telemann, Scarlatti, Dowland, and Handel, as well as more obscure artists such as Salamon Rossi, Matthew Holmes, John Johnson, and Jean d’Estrée. Esteemed early music ensembles, such as Plain and Easie, Tempesta di Mare, Sacabuche, and the Baltimore Consort, give performances covering the Medieval period through the early Classical period.
