"IndyBaroque is so excited to have Paulina Francisco as our new General Manager,” says Board President Leela Breithaupt. “Paulina's expertise in social media, project management, and fiscal management in addition to her intimate knowledge of the Early Music community makes her a wonderful GM to lead IndyBaroque into a new era."

Paulina comes to IndyBaroque having served as General Manager of the Bloomington Early Music Festival since 2018, in addition to seasonal production engagements with Early Music American and the San Francisco Early Music Society. Having recently completed coursework for a DM in Historical Performance at Indiana University, her skills as an administrator are amplified by extensive knowledge of early music repertoire and experience performing with organizations throughout Indianapolis.

A new grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. will help further IndyBaroque’s ongoing mission to engage, enrich, and inspire the Indiana community and beyond by fostering connections between the past and the present through performances of 17th and 18th century music.


IndyBaroque will use the $25,000 grant to underwrite strategic planning and marketing, the streaming of concerts, and to help widen IndyBaroque’s global audience through the orchestra’s ongoing recordings for Naxos Records, Inc., one of classical music’s leading recording labels.


IndyBaroque Appoints Rachel Gries Interim Board President

June 1, 2021


IndyBaroque Music, Inc. is pleased to announce the appointment of Rachel Gries as Interim Board President, effective June 1, 2021. Gries will succeed Board President and former Executive Director Leela Breithaupt, who will assume the role of Executive Director of Bach Choir of Bethlehem, in Bethlehem, PA.

"Rachel is absolutely the best person to serve as IBO Interim Board president,” says long-time board member Tom Gerber.  “Her commitment to the IBO is seen in her many years of beautiful artistic contribution as principal violist, as well as astute organizational contribution as Board member and Treasurer.  Her deep knowledge of the "business" of the IBO, as well as a rock-steady belief in the group's vision, will help ensure a smooth and successful transition from the period of Leela Breithaupt's superb leadership as Board President into the future."

Rachel brings a well-rounded and extensive knowledge of the organization’s development over the past few years. She currently serves as Principal Violist of IBO and will transition out of the Board Treasurer position to fulfill this new role.

“I am delighted that the Board has asked me to serve IndyBaroque Music, Inc. in this role,” says Greis. “ I have been a member of IndyBaroque for more than 20 years, and the organization and those associated with it hold a special place in my heart.  Leela Breithaupt has done wonderful during her time as President, and I am looking forward to IndyBaroque's continued growth as we serve the Indianapolis community.”

Together with his brothers Wieland and Sigiswald, Barthold Kuijken has been in the vanguard of the early-music movement since the 1970s, performing, teaching, and recording around the world. For the past ten years, he has been the artistic director of the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra (IBO), which is in the midst of a four-CD project with Naxos Records. The Lully Effect was a highlighted release in September 2018, while The Versailles Revolution will be out in November.

Raymond Bisha introduces a new release of music by three Baroque titans: Lully, Telemann and Rameau. The latter two were hugely influenced by the music of Lully, who was powerfully positioned as the chief musician of King Louis XIV of France. Lully left a rich legacy of dramatic music scored for orchestra. It left an indelible impression on all who heard it, with its masterly balance of grandeur and finesse. Yet, unlike the manuscripts of solo and chamber works of the time, Lully left us little clarity regarding the intricate ornamentation that would have been used spontaneously by the performers. Conductor Barthold Kuijken’s painstaking research now restores that beating heart to the music.
