The Baroque Is Back at Music Mountain

The final of four concerts by the New Baroque Soloists will be held  in Gordon Hall at Music Mountain in Falls Village, Conn., on Wednesday, Aug. 10, at 5 p.m.

As always, the performance will be led by  Music Director Doug Myers, founder of the group. This is the group’s 16th season performing large-scale chamber music, but its first season at Music Mountain. Three concerts have already been held, on July 20 and 27 and Aug. 3.

There are typically five to seven musicians for each concert, performing on violin, viola, oboe, cello, harpsichord, organ, flute, horn and French horn. Most of the musicians are members of other groups, orchestras or university faculties  with prestigious  music programs including Juilliard. They come together for the purpose of recreating a unique sound in the musical pantheon. Most of the musicians will play solo within the musical work.

The specific musical program is only determined two or three days before the concert, and is posted online at  www.northwestmusicassociation.com.

There is no admission charge to hear the concert in the air conditioned Gordon Hall, but donations are gratefully accepted. The Music Mountain concerts are hosted by the Northwest Music Association.
