Our Story

The Boston-based Antico Moderno is a new, fantastically unique period chamber ensemble. Born out of a mutually shared passion by its members for both historically informed performance on period instruments and the creation and performance of new music, A/M seeks to combine these two seemingly disparate musical worlds by commissioning new works specifically for historical instruments. Collaborating closely with their composer-in-residence during every step of the compositional process, Antico Moderno presents exciting, intelligent, and trailblazing programs that incorporate works both old and new on period instruments.  Currently the ensemble-in-residence at First Lutheran Church in Boston, Antico Moderno has been visiting artists at the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival and the Yale School of Music.
