INDIANAPOLIS BAROQUE ORCHESTRA
Named one of the top 25 ensembles in celebration of Early Music America’s 25th anniversary in 2011, the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra is dedicated to excellent and exuberant performance of 17th- and 18th-century music on period instruments. It is led by artistic director, Barthold Kuijken.
Critically admired for its performances of French Baroque repertoire, members of the orchestra are some of the finest Baroque specialists in North America, and frequently collaborate with other premier ensembles throughout the country. Notable guest appearances by, among others, Julianne Baird, Stanley Ritchie and John Holloway, have become highlights in the orchestra’s concert schedule in Indianapolis and around the United States.
Established in 1997, the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra is committed to music education and regularly presents concerts in schools, libraries, nursing homes and hospitals. It is also involved in the Indianapolis arts scene, frequently collaborating with other arts organisations, such as museums, dance companies and opera companies.
