Eudaimonia, A Purposeful Period Band

Eudaimonia, A Purposeful Period Band

Eudaimonia is a vibrant, conductorless period orchestra that uses musical performance to support the social and humanitarian work of our partner organizations.

Music of the past serving needs of the present

Founded and directed by early keyboardist Vivian Montgomery and violinist Julia McKenzie, Eudaimonia brings together some of the Boston area’s most creative performers in the historical performance field. As an artistic collective, we build upon shared ideals, ignited spirits, and a desire for healthy collaboration. 

Eudaimonia’s repertoire spans the mid-16th century through the middle of the 19th century and our programs center around vocal & orchestral works that speak to the mission of our partner organizations. The works of ​women composers are seamlessly blended into our programming.

“……Eudaimonia has burst on the scene with … real artistry … completely delightful … great vitality.”
