About Harmonia Early Music

Harmonia is a weekly one-hour radio program, podcast and blog that takes listeners back in history to the cathedrals, fairs, and stages of the past, teaching listeners about history as documented by musicians of the periods.

Through brilliant performances by today’s early music artists and insightful commentary, listeners experience the richness of early music history and culture. From the sublime realm of Chant to the passion of an Italian Baroque violin sonata, Harmonia casts new light on the music of the distant past.

Harmonia is a production of WFIU Public Radio in Bloomington, Indiana, drawing on resources from the Indiana University School of Music’s world-renowned Early Music Institute, and Indiana University’s Thomas Binkley Archive of Early Music Recordings.

Additional technical support from KOHM at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas.
