About HIP

HIP = Historically Informed Performance
North Carolina is fortunate to be home to musicians and early music authorities who perform on period instruments, or instruments as they were in the time-period when music was written. For a more depth explanation: https://www.carnegiehall.org/Explore/Articles/2022/04/29/Historically-Informed-Performance
The North Carolina HIP Music Festival was born in 2013 after several years of successful Historical Bach concerts which included violist Suzanne Rousso (Mallarmé), cellists Brent Wissick (UNC-CH), Stephanie Vial (The Vivaldi Project) and Barbara Krumdieck (NC Baroque Orchestra), and harpsichordists Elaine Funaro (Aliénor) and Beverly Biggs (Baroque & Beyond). Between the 2013 and 2014 NC HIP Music Festivals, the offering of high-quality early music concerts doubled, including performances by prominent international groups such as the Hilliard Ensemble and the English Concert.
