Early Music Southwest is an international collaboration of baroque-music professionals who specialize in the performance of chamber music of the 17th and 18th centuries on original instruments. EMSW was established in 2000 by noted harpsichordist Christina Edelen, former faculty member at Baylor and the University of Houston; and international orchestral cellist Frederick Edelen, member of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam. The Edelens organize this delightful Sunday series for Rienzi.

Education programs at Rienzi receive generous funding from the Sterling-Turner Foundation; the Brown Foundation, Inc.; Carroll Sterling and Harris Masterson III Endowment Fund; and the Caroline Wiess Law Endowment Fund
