Frank Nowell founded the Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado in 2005, and the ensemble quickly garnered acclaim for its “artistic vision, authenticity, and devotion” under his leadership as Artistic Director and harpsichordist. Founding the orchestra fulfilled a long-held dream to expand the Denver arts scene to include a professional orchestra devoted to historically inspired performances of music from the 17th and 18th centuries. An active performer as a Baroque keyboard specialist and “early music entrepreneur,” Mr. Nowell was previously co-founder of the early music group Diverse Passions and founder of the Denver Handel Festival. He is a frequent guest artist, collaborator, and soloist, including recent or upcoming appearances with the Cottonwood Music Festival, American Guild of Organists Regional Convention, Colorado Symphony Orchestra, Off the Hook Chamber Music Festival, Pro Musica Colorado, Denver Early Music Consort, and St. Martin’s Chamber Choir. As an organist he earned Associate certification (AAGO) from the American Guild of Organists and has recorded on the Cygnus label. Mr. Nowell serves on the Board of Directors of Early Music America and as chair of EMA's Education committee, and takes joy in introducing people of all ages and backgrounds to Baroque music, as well as collaborating with a wide range of artists and art forms to bring new dimensions to this music. He received the Master of Music degree from the University of Colorado, and a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors from Princeton University.
