usic before 1600, unlike Baroque music, leads a niche existence in concert programs and festivals worldwide.

The Basel region has a unique potential of musicians with expertise in practice and research for this music. With the world’s leading early music college, the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, initiated 90 years ago by Paul Sacher, Basel became a hotspot for early music.

Many of these musicians live in the Basel region, but most of them travel abroad on business for concerts; they are seldom heard in Basel itself.

ReRenaissance offers them a platform in their own city.
