Type of Organization
Louisville, Kentucky-based Bourbon Baroque specializes in the historically informed performance of 17th through 18th-century music inspired by the art and culture of the royal House of Bourbon. Led by harpsichordist John Austin Clark and violinist Alice Culin-Ellison, the ensemble varies in size based programming, performing chamber concerts to full operatic spectacles throughout the season and in a variety of venues. Founded in the summer of 2007 by harpsichordist John Austin Clark and the late baroque violinist Nicolas Fortin, Bourbon Baroque holds collaboration as its mission through music.
Bourbon Baroque performs the music of the 17th and 18th centuries for the promotion of public interest in the arts, culture, and lifestyle of the Baroque through collaboration and strategic partnerships.
