To be Announced

The Penn State Baroque Ensemble is the newest of the University's performing ensembles. It specializes in performing European music of the Baroque era on historical instruments, recreating the music as it might have sounded at the time it was written, according to the most recent scholarly research into historical performance. Using a mixture of faculty and string students, rehearsals reinforce Baroque performance techniques and stylistic interpretation. The ensemble is regularly coached and directed by leading early music groups and performers from Europe and America, such as the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the King's Consort, Florilegium, and Modern Musik. The Baroque Ensemble performs two concerts a semester both on and off campus. It is open to all students, regardless of major, by audition.
