Sixty years ago, a revolution began when a group of musicians rebelled against "mainstream" classical music and sparked the historically-informed performance (HIP) movement. They wanted to play on original instruments, in the performance style the composers intended, and give their audience an authentic experience. These rebels put Baroque music on the map, and today, more students than ever are choosing HIP.
Here are a few of those bright stars.
