About

REMA is the only representative network for Early Music in Europe.
Its main aim is to act as a network for its members,
encouraging the exchange of knowledge, information
and co-operations in the early music field.

REMA members took the historic decision to open the membership to new categories of Early Music professionals, in order to represent the field's full spectrum. Therefore, 25 new organisations joined REMA in 2021 for a trial year.
