First Presbyterian hosts workshop in Bozeman

Baroque Music Montana and the Bozeman Symphony present the Period Performance Workshop for modern instrument performers, hosted by First Presbyterian Church, Aug. 25-27.

The workshop will present a final concert on Sunday, August 27, at 4 pm, free and open to the public, presenting chamber and orchestra works from the baroque period at First Presbyterian Church (26 W. Babcock St., Downtown Bozeman). This is the second year the workshop will present the free performance. 


Workshop participants will spend three days examining original manuscript sources, conventions of baroque style as it relates to modern instruments, improvisation, and historical cultural context.  The workshop is led by Artistic Director Carrie Krause and members of the I-90 Collective, comprised of busy baroque soloists, who perform extensively across the country and abroad with many of America's leading period-instrument ensembles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_jT3IchKgQ
