Under the direction of internationally acclaimed British conductor Dame Jane Glover, Music of the Baroque occupies a special place in the rich cultural life of Chicago, sharing with Chicago audiences glorious works and undiscovered musical treasures from one of music history’s most important periods. One of the few groups of its stature in the country devoted to the performance of eighteenth-century works for chorus and orchestra, Music of the Baroque is consistently positioned among Chicago’s leading classical music groups. Over the past four decades, Music of the Baroque has presented many early masterpieces, drawing particular praise for its performances of the major choral works of J. S. Bach, Haydn, Mozart, and Handel.
Opera News calls Music of the Baroque’s chorus “one of Chicago’s musical glories” and the Chicago Sun-Times writes, “Lyric Opera of Chicago and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra may be the big guys on the local classical music scene, but in terms of sheer quality of performance…Music of the Baroque inhabits the same stratosphere.”
The Chicago area’s finest professional musicians make up the chorus and orchestra of Music of the Baroque, including many who sing and play with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Lyric Opera. Listeners across the country enjoy the work of Music of the Baroque through radio broadcasts and recordings on 98.7WFMT Radio.
