Topic Summary
Posted by: Forum Admin Posted on: Oct 14th, 2003, 7:57am
"The Early Music Ensemble in 21st Century America" is a Masters Thesis prepared by Tonya Assid for presentation to the dissertation committee at the University of North Texas in December 2003.
 
From the abstract:
 
The early music ensemble has evolved from a counterculture to a mainstream musical genre. Because of this early music is having to learn arts management. Once a unique force it now competes with other arts organizations for funding and audience. Unlike other arts groups, early music has little help from within to clarify non-profit management.
 
Through three types of surveys that were e-mailed to 239 early music organizations and 20 early music societies, an assessment of what is currently happening with early music ensembles in terms of growth, funding and overall well-being can be made. The information obtained revealed that most early music ensembles have little or no training in how to run an organization. This inexperience is creating problems and changing the face of early music. Information from the survey also reveals that even with the economic problems over the last three years, early music is continuing to survive.
 
The paper is in PDF format and is 247 KB in length. You can download it from the Early MusiChicago Publications page, http://earlymusichicago.org/publications.htm, in the Articles/Papers section.
 
It is an interesting assemblage of data and observations and is well worth a read.
