ON THE PERIPHERY: WOMEN COMPOSERS IN THE BAROQUE
October 18-24, 2020
In honor of the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage, IndyBaroque delves into the music and lives of female composers during the Baroque period. Often overlooked and on the periphery of the musical world, composers such as Elisabeth Claude Jacquet de la Guerre and Isabella Leonarda were prolific artists contributing to the fabric of musical life in addition to their regular duties at convents and courts of the 17th and 18th centuries.

GROWING UP BAROQUE
March 13, 2021
A core element of IndyBaroque Music’s mission statement is educational outreach, and this IndyBaroque Chamber Players concert focuses on the 18th-century music to which young students are exposed in their private study. Many of the IBO’s members are teachers themselves and remember how important first lessons in Bach, Vivaldi, and Handel were to them as kids. In the spirit of equity and music for all, IndyBaroque Music has developed this program to delight new and old audiences alike with iconic chamber period pieces performed on Baroque instruments in a historically informed performance style. Bring the family and enjoy this interactive program.
