Members of the North Carolina Baroque Orchestra join a chamber ensemble from the St. Paul's Senior Choir to present a program inspired by Dieterich Buxtehude's Abendmusik concerts at the Marienkirche in Luebeck. So acclaimed were these concerts that a young Johann Sebastian Bach traveled over 250 miles on foot to attend, and overstayed his leave by months!
The North Carolina Baroque Orchestra (NCBO), a period instrument ensemble, was co-founded in 2011 by sisters and musical collaborators Frances Blaker and Barbara Blaker Krumdieck for the purpose of providing orchestral and chamber music opportunities for musicians specializing in baroque performance practice. The ensemble maintains a goal of presenting refined, stylistic, artistic and fun performances, engaging both the players and the listeners in the stories and historical context behind the music.
