Dorian Baroque presents an orchestral concert titled “The Concerto Grosso.” This uniquely baroque form of composition foreshadows the development of the standard concerto and allows the orchestra to expand and subside from soloist to chamber ensemble to full orchestra.  The orchestra performs without conductor, and showcases several musicians.  Soloists include Sang Joon Park, baroque flute; Jessica Park, Marina Fragoulis, violin; Edmundo Ramirez, Liv Heym, viola; Carolyn Jesselson, Anneke Schaul-Yoder, cello; Alexandra Snyder-Dunbar, harpsichord; and many more.

About the Ensemble:

Dorian Baroque is a New-York based ensemble of musicians who perform on period instruments, presenting orchestral, chamber and vocal music ranging from the early baroque period to the present. The diverse musical backgrounds of the performers bring a distinct philosophy to music making that is focused on exploring the versatility of historical instruments and led by the principles of the baroque period – opulence, exuberance, dissonance, and ornate grandeur.  The orchestra made its debut in June 2012 and will end its inaugural season in a fully-staged opera at the Manhattan School of Music’s Summer Voice Festival of Claudio Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea - June 2013.
