The 2023-2024 Alberta Baroque Ensemble Season

I would like to invite you to join the Alberta Baroque Ensemble for our 43rd concert season 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; appearing will be distinguished guest soloists Elizabeth Koch (flute), John Tessier (tenor), Michael Kurschat (baritone), and Robert Uchida (violin).

Works featured this season include the better-known composers of the era J.S. Bach and Handel, and rarer recognized greats Fasch, Perti, Gluck, and Avison.
