North Carolina Baroque Orchestra
March 31 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The North Carolina Baroque Orchestra (NCBO) will bring captivating concertos and enthralling character pieces to our college stage this March 31st. Our musical tale begins in the mid-17th century with composers Bertali, Biber and Lully, and progresses to 18th century composers Corelli, Bach and Vivaldi. Concertos will feature members of the orchestra as they bring forth the vivid, sparkling and lyrical phrases. Character pieces like Biber’s “Batallia” and Bertali’s “Tausend Gulden” allow for special effects and a range of tones from smokey to crystalline, all to bring out a story or create a dramatic atmosphere. Concerto and character piece come together for Vivaldi’s recorder concerto Tempesta di Mare (storm at sea) which will feature Frances Blaker as soloist.
The North Carolina Baroque Orchestra is a period instrument ensemble specializing in the music of the 17th & 18th centuries.
