Haliciana Schola Cantorum is a Swiss association whose main purpose is to bring together musicians from Western and Eastern Europe and promote Historically Informed Performance Practice. Through our activities we: 

  • Develop the European model of classical musical education in Eastern Europe (mainly in Ukraine) and promote historically informed performance practice, which is an essential part of the modern musical education in Europe

  • Offer private music lessons to instrumentalists and vocalists who are interested in broadening their musical horizons and who wish to understand the musical language of the 17th and 18th centuries on a deeper level

  • Organize lectures and seminars about Early music and comprehending it, as well as host master classes by instructors from all over Europe

  • Support musicology studies and research and build an international platform for exchange and dialogue between musicologists and researchers from Western and Eastern Europe

  • Organize concerts and workshops for children and consult music teachers

Haliciana Schola Cantorum was founded as a concept of the European institute of education and research, which was inspired by the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis (Switzerland). We try to see music in the context of the epoch in which it first came to be and to interpret it accordingly. 

Our main goal is to have the public become inspired by our concerts, masterpieces and children’s projects, by means of the educational philosophy and the historically-informed performance practice, so that they perceive already known music with a different enthusiasm and discover new works not particularly well-known, or not known whatsoever, in Europe.

We are a non-profit association and, as of yet, have no business activity. The winnings of our concerts simply serve our charity initiatives and cover our main expenses.  

We gladly invest our time, knowledge and experience to promote the cultural exchange and understanding between Western and Eastern Europe.
