GET TO KNOW IBO

Internationally renowned Baroque flutist and conductor Barthold Kuijken is IndyBaroque’s artistic director. Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra and IndyBaroque Chamber Players concerts take place at the Indiana History Center and the University of Indianapolis, where the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra has been ensemble-in-residence since 1999. 


The members of the group perform on instruments built between about 1600 and 1750, or replicas thereof, including instruments not in common use today, such as the theorbo, the violone, the sackbut, wooden one-keyed flutes, valveless trumpets, and the harpsichord.

IndyBaroque Appoints Rachel Gries Interim Board President

June 1, 2021

*FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE*

 

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.”
