Chair, Department of Historical Performance
For more than 40 years, the Jacobs School of Music has offered a field-leading, comprehensive degree program in historical performance, now with a substantial international network of successful and supportive alumni.
In addition to a broad range of curriculum emphases, students can benefit from special learning opportunities beyond the Historical Performance Department via Musicology and Music Theory, each containing faculty with strong interests in historical performance.
Moreover, the entire IU Bloomington campus offers highly valuable interdisciplinary perspectives, whether through the Medieval Studies Institute, Renaissance Studies, Center for Eighteenth-Century Studies, or Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology.
The Historical Performance program at Jacobs is uniquely positioned on a major research university campus to offer a truly “compleat” experience in historical performance.
