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.
