The 2016-2017 Alberta Baroque Ensemble Season

You are invited to join the Alberta Baroque Ensemble for its 37th season of concerts and experience why the Alberta Baroque Ensemble is a premier chamber orchestra that specializes in music composed in the 17th and 18th centuries.

You will hear performances by some of the finest musicians in Edmonton and featuring distinguished guest soloists with each concert including Suzanne Lemieux (oboe); Elizabeth Koch (flute); and Robert Uchida (violin). Works featured this season include the better-known composers of the era J.S. Bach, Vivaldi, and Handel, and rarer recognized greats Holzbauer and Fasch.

After a highly successful season last year, the Alberta Baroque Ensemble’s 37th season will continue to prove why it has been such a significant mainstay in the Edmonton Arts scene since 1980.
