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 seventeenth- and eighteenth-century music on period instruments. The orchestra was founded in 1997 and its current artistic director is Barthold Kuijken, internationally renowned Baroque flutist and distinguished Early Music pedagogue.
In its 26th year as a leading Baroque chamber music group, Ensemble Voltaire’s gifted musicians, skilled in playing period instruments, bring their rich understanding of the repertoire and culture of the period to bear on time-bridging performances. At ease with today’s audiences, they bring the Baroque period to life with story and humor, subtly surrounding the listener with the cultural context from which the music emerges.
IndyBaroque Music, Inc. is the parent organization of the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra and Ensemble Voltaire. Our mission is to enrich, inspire and educate the Indianapolis and Indiana communities with exuberant performances of 17th and 18th century music.
