Period-instrument ensemble Baroque Band

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Baroque Band, Chicago’s first and only period-instrument orchestra, will perform at 8 p.m. Jan. 24 in the Purdue Memorial Union South Ballroom.

The program, which is presented by Purdue Convocations, is titled “Reach for the Skies,” and will feature Garry Clarke, the Baroque Band founder and artistic director. Clarke, a former violinist with the Academy of Ancient Music, will appear with special guest David Hansen, countertenor. The performance will include works by Antonio Vivaldi, Giovanni Bonocini, Riccardo Broschi, George Frideric Handel and Christoph Willibald Gluck.

“The Purdue Memorial Union South Ballroom, with its resonant acoustics, will serve as an ideal location for this tour de force of vocal and opera counterpoint,” said Abby Eddy, director of marketing for Purdue Convocations. Beverage service will complete the setting.

Established in 2007 as Chicago's first period-instrument orchestra, the Baroque Band is known for its high artistic standards and compelling programs.
