Welcome to Early MusiChicago!
Welcome to the new Early MusiChicago Discussion Forum!
Here is where you can ask questions, give answers, trade opinions, "shoot the breeze," or just be a "lurker" (never post yourself, instead just read what others have to say).
Try to stay on topic, and don't stray too far away from discussing early music. And needless to say, remain civil and courteous at all times.
Each forum is moderated. Although the WebMaster is currently Moderator for most of the forums, he will be happy to pass along the responsibility to others better qualified in a particular area.
We have created some initial forum categories. Don't be afraid to suggest others (e.g., a forum devoted to Baroque music only, or one devoted to the viola da gamba) if you think the topic(s) deserve extra attention or special treatment.
Messages posted in these Forums will remain here more or less indefinitely. Over time, the "collective wisdom" will accumulate into a valuable on-line store of knowledge, available for searching and recall at will.
We hope that you find these new discussion fora to be valuable additions to the Early MusiChicago web site, and a means to stoke your passion for early music.
