Case Western Reserve University Baroque Orchestra
Students in the CWRU Baroque Orchestra get practical, pre-professional training in the burgeoning field of 17th- and 18th-century performance practice. the orchestra rehearses twice weekly and generally presents two concerts each semester. Each semester’s programs concentrate on a particular aspect of Baroque ensemble music: for instance, the music around J S Bach,17th-century Italian ensemble music, or French composers under the influence of Italian musical taste.
On this edition of Cleveland Ovations, we bring you their most recent concert, led by director Julie Andrijeski.
