Step back in time to the music of Gothic cathedrals and Renaissance faires with Stony Brook University Music Department's fifth annual Early Music Day. This year's Early Music Day features three hours of hands-on instrumental presentations, performances by the department's top performers on early instruments, and family-friendly guides on the earliest days of classical music's history. The presentations in the music department's 2nd and 3rd floor classrooms are open to all, and participants are encouraged to walk in and out of rooms at leisure to experience all offerings.

Featured is a special 1 pm presentation by renowned scholar and professor emeritus, Sarah Fuller, a founding member of the music department, who will pique your interest on beautifully handcrafted manuscript music scores that demonstrate innovations in music notation throughout history. Joining her will be the university's Gregorian Chant Group. Additionally, learn about the women who "wear the pants" in Baroque opera and get mini-lessons on topics such as Baroque dances and harpsichord playing. Instruments featured will be Baroque stringed instruments (cello, viola, violin, guitar), the Renaissance lute, natural horn, Baroque trumpet, clavichord, harpsichord, vocal demonstrations, and more. Early Music Day is for all ages and is free to attend.
