early music and musical instruments, and the presentation of musical performances

and encouragement of, amateur music-making. Music written before 1700 is
a particularly rich source for ensemble players of modest technique. The
Society possesses an excellent music library for this purpose.

by both members and non-members who can establish a high standard of performance.
4.keep members informed
of local and interstate early music activities, principally through circulation
of a regular newsletter, e-mail bulletins, and this web page.
