Chamber music concert

  • The Memorial Church

Come join members of the Harvard Baroque Chamber Orchestra on March 26 for an evening of chamber music! This year marks the 250th anniversary of Georg Philipp Telemann's death, and there are few things that baroque musicians love more than celebrating dead composers. So in anticipation of our full orchestral concert in April, which honors Telemann and some of his surprisingly famous god-children (google it), members of HBCO have formed smaller chamber groups to present music both by and inspired by GPT. Telemann's ridiculously prolific career took him all across Europe, and he influenced and was influenced by many styles and people - ranging from Polish counts to Neapolitan diplomats to the musicians in his home court of Hamburg. Join us as we follow him across Europe!
