In response to our recent E-Notes Survey, Early Music America is making a change in the way we communicate with you digitally. E-Notes Weekly will bring the early music community to your inbox every Tuesday in a more concise format. You can look forward to weekly highlights of EMA members, upcoming events from around North America, and featured news from EMA and beyond. Thank you to everyone who responded to the survey and provided such valuable feedback!

If you’re like us, you are reflecting on the past year and imagining what's to come. It’s been a tumultuous year in so many ways, and the staff and board of Early Music America are looking forward to sharing your stories and events and to improving the services we offer to all of you in the early music field. We will be introducing helpful online resources and providing more scholarships, and perhaps most important, we will push for equality of opportunity to all who want to take part in early music, regardless of background; we will fight sexism and racism in our field because music belongs to all of us, equally. We are excited by all the possibilities and look forward to meeting many of you in 2018. Thank you for your support!

Baroque Dance for Musicians
by Julie Andrijeski
The simple step, both in its natural and stylized forms, can deeply impact our general music making. When sculpting musical notes into gestures, for instance, think about how subtleties in bow (or air) speed and pressure can add variety and shape. When playing even the staunchest march or most fleeting passepied, dance reminds us that there is always tension and release, action and reaction, and ebb and flow-and that movements are curved (buoyant) rather than linear.
