Be transported! Great music provides the beauty and truth that inspires and uplifts us. We invite you to join us for a season of concerts by artists dedicated to authentic performance traditions, which offer a unique viewpoint for familiar works and introduce us to music that is new and challenging to our ears.
The International Series presents the greatest early music performers from around the globe, and 2014-15 offers an exceptional mix. We are pleased to announce the return of Musica Ficta (Valencia) and Chanticleer (San Francisco) as we introduce three ensembles new to our series, Constantinople and Pallade Musica (Montreal) and a special new collaboration with colleagues in Victoria and Vancouver BC to present Handel’s monumental oratorio masterpiece, Theodora.
The Seattle Baroque Orchestra is Seattle’s premier period instrumental ensemble, known for its brilliance and virtuosity. This season the Orchestra will conclude its search for a new Music Director, presenting concerts by three final candidates: Matthias Maute, Eric Milnes, and Julie Andrijeski. The director search has been an energizing journey for the Seattle Baroque Orchestra as well as the audience. Don’t miss out on the opportunity; we want your input as we chart the future for SBO. The Orchestra’s season will conclude with a stirring performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with guest leader/soloist Carrie Krause.
