Cleveland area early music musician's directory

This list is designed for both professionals and amateurs. My hope is that people will use it for a wide range of purposes from forming new ensembles ("I'm hoping to start a group dedicated to performing late medieval German music.") to one-off groups ("I've just found this great piece I want to perform--if only I could find a crumhorn player.") to social gatherings ("I want to have a party where we sing through the Tallis Lamentations, but we need more basses.") to finding musicians or ensembles for hire ("I want a Renaissance wind band to play the procession at my wedding.") If you would like to be on this list, send your information to res29, then an "at sign," then Give me whatever contact information you are comfortable with. You're welcome to give the url's of any personal or ensemble webpages to direct people to further information.
