Music of the Baroque
Sixty of the Chicago area’s finest professional
musicians make up the chorus and orchestra of Music of the
Baroque. Many have played and sung for years with the ensemble.
The opportunity to perform early repertoire at a very high
artistic level with fellow fine musicians keeps ensemble members
coming back concert after concert.
Jane Glover was named Music Director in September 2002.
"Her Mozart, though often mellow-edged and full of
opulently sculpted swoops and leaps, is always light on its feet.
Even at its most delicate, however, it is never fragile or
brittle. The musical lace is spun from almost transparent but
always unbreakable thread. There is something organic about the performances Glover draws
from her musicians. The orchestral music seems to flow as
naturally as a mighty, if changeable, river."
"Jane Glover conducts with live pacing, glowing sound and wistful beauty. "New York Times (King Arthur, March 2008)
