Oberlin Baroque (EMA’s Young Performers Festival)
May 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
Oberlin Baroque will perform as part of Early Music America’s Young Performers Festival during the Bloomington Early Music Festival.
2019 Festival Program: Paris and Beyond
This program features music by some of Baroque Europe’s most cosmopolitan composers, including a Telemann Paris Quartet. This concert is an outgrowth of our Baroque Ensemble program. We hope this performance will show the breadth of repertoire our students work with on a regular basis.
Created in 1986, the Oberlin Department of Historical Performance is one of the oldest in the country, but their commitment to the field goes back to the founding of the Baroque Performance Institute (BPI) which has taken place every summer since 1972. Oberlin’s concert program’s performances will be drawn from Oberlin’s Baroque Ensemble program–small, coached ensembles that perform once or twice per semester–and from the Oberlin Baroque Orchestra, which has an intensive (6 hours/week) rehearsal schedule for a four-week period each semester. Some of the instrumentalists are majors in Oberlin’s Historical Performance program; others are taking secondary lessons on a historical instrument.
