With over 70 students participating every semester, the University of North Texas has one of the largest early music programs in North America. Regular ensembles include The UNT Baroque Orchestra (numbering up to 35 students on period instruments, both winds and strings), The Collegium Singers, The UNT Baroque Trumpet Ensemble as well as numerous chamber ensembles. Private instruction is offered on most baroque instruments. The instrument collection is extensive, numbering nearly 300, so that ensembles of nearly every era before 1800 can be assembled. Degrees in musicology with an emphasis in early music performance are offered at the master’s and doctoral levels as well as a related field program for DMA and MM candidates.
