INTRODUCING INTERNATIONAL BAROQUE CONSORT
The International Baroque Consort is an historically informed chamber ensemble, performing music mainly from the 17th and 18th centuries. Our current formation is natural trumpet, soprano, baroque cello, and harpsichord. The IBC was formed during the covid-19 pandemic and started out as an online ensemble, creating performances remotely. Our recent tour to the USA in April 2022 was the first time we performed together as a group. The IBC were the Guest Artists at the North American Baroque Trumpet Competition and Conference at the University of Kentucky, and the Artist in Residence at Ft Lewis College, Durango. In addition to giving concerts and masterclasses, the IBC visited primary and secondary schools for group coaching and individual lessons. The IBC strives to create engaging performances and provide educational opportunities for a wide range of people.
