Our donors make our music happen: affordable concerts, accessible education and high-level research.

The Academy of Ancient Music exists to explore, reveal and preserve our glorious treasure-house of early music. We reveal the performance, knowledge and appreciation of music through our learning and participation scheme AAMplify, which promotes music education in schools, music colleges and in local communities.

The Academy of Ancient Music brings classical music to life, making music accessible and enjoyable for all – in acclaimed concerts, award-winning recordings, engaging workshops and more.

Our musicians are acknowledged as the leading baroque and classical players of a generation. They play on period instruments and bring musical scholarship to their performance, exploring this music and its heritage with passion, authenticity and the highest standards of excellence.

Our music is revealed and revered globally. The Academy of Ancient Music has toured on every continent except Antarctica; has made over 300 recordings with the world’s foremost players and singers; and we are the most listened-to period-instrument ensemble online, across the world. We will continue to be imaginative and exploit all formats to extend our reach, and our music, as widely as possible.
