http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academy_of_Ancient_Music
The Academy of Ancient Music is an all period-instrument orchestra based out of London. All instruments are originals or reproductions of the instruments that would have been used in a baroque orchestra. The name of the group comes from an original organization from the 18th century. They play primarily baroque and classical music, although they also play some modern pieces written for baroque orchestra.

This is a link to Oberlin Conservatory's historical performance department. Within the department, baroque violin, baroque cello / viola da gamba, baroque flute, baroque oboe, harpsichord, and recorder are all taught. All instruction for these instruments would be in reflection upon the music and techniques of the pre-classical era, creating an entire new generation of instrumentalists focusing upon early music.
