The music of the French Baroque is some of the most beautiful and haunting ever written. This unique style can also be one of the most challenging to perform, with a style that is demanding both technically and intellectually.
As part of this concert week, Music City Baroque, in partnership with The Nashville Symphony, will host the world-renowned Baroque flautist Barthold Kuijken for an open rehearsal. He will share with musicians and audience alike aspects of French Baroque style, touching on the ideals that were important to the composers as well as the finer points of performance practice.

Since its founding in 2005, Music City Baroque has become Nashville's premier period instrument ensemble, working with renowned guest artists and performing music ranging from Bach's B minor Mass to Baroque music from Central America with, in the words of a critic, "grace, taste, and unfailing sensitivity."
We focus on the music and instruments of this time period because we believe that it resonates with listeners and performers to this day. By understanding the original context, instruments, and style, we grow closer to this music in all of its original color and passion.
You can be a part of this tradition by making a tax-deductible donation to Music City Baroque. Your gift brings music to audiences in our community and supports the talented musicians across the region who are dedicated to the performance of early music.
We thank you for your generosity and hope to see you at our upcoming events in March (see below for news about a special guest). Happy Holidays and best wishes for the New Year from everyone at Music City Baroque!
