The Baroque Orchestra, directed by faculty violinist David Sariti, presents dynamic, vital performances of music from the 17th and 18th centuries with the instruments and performance practices for which it was written, without a conductor. The experience will challenge preconceived notions of music performance, and build musicianship and listening skills. Period instruments at Baroque pitch from the University’s extensive collection are used, and students receive personal instruction on their specific techniques.
