      UVA Dept. of Music- Baroque Orchestra

      The McIntire Department of Music is proud to present the University of Virginia Baroque Orchestra concert on Sunday, April 19th at 8pm in Old Cabell Hall.

      Students learn to use instruments and musicianship of the period, and follow historic precedent by performing without a conductor. The ensemble's educational mission extends to the audience, who is encouraged to come and discover these wonderful and unfamiliar works.

      The Baroque Orchestra, directed by faculty violinist David Sariti, presents dynamic, vital performances of music from the 17th and 18th centuries with the instruments and performance practices for which it was written, without a conductor. The experience will challenge preconceived notions of music performance, and build musicianship and listening skills. Period instruments at Baroque pitch from the University’s extensive collection are used, and students receive personal instruction on their specific techniques.

      Cost: Payment required - Tickets are $10 for the general public, $9 for UVA Faculty and Staff, $5 for students and free for UVA Students who reserve in advance.
