Center for Old Music

About the Center for Old Music


The Center for Old Music in the New World, was founded in 1977 in Lexington, Kentucky, by the late Donna Boyd. The current music director is joanna Manring Davis, with Malissa Sullivan as director of instruments. The purpose of the Center is to present authentic performance of early music (medieval through baroque eras) to central Kentucky audiences.

While we have presented concerts by world-renowned artists in the past, our focus in recent years has been the concerts by the Center's resident performing ensemble, Musick's Company. We normally present a major holiday concert in December and another concert in the spring. Various sub-units sometimes do smaller performances, either sponsored by the Center, or for hire by very select outside organizations.
