      UVA Dept. of Music- Baroque Orchestra

      The UVA Baroque Orchestra, led by faculty violinist David Sariti, presents a varied program of (mostly) 17th-century works by Lully, Young, Merula, and a Noel Symphonie by Michele Corrette, all using period instruments and performance practices.

      Students learn to use instruments and musicianship of the period, and follow historic precedent by performing without a conductor. The ensemble's educational mission extends to the audience, who is encouraged to come and discover these wonderful and unfamiliar works.

      The Baroque Orchestra presents dynamic, vital performances of music from the 17th and 18th centuries with the instruments and performance practices for which it was written, without a conductor. The experience will challenge preconceived notions of music performance, and build musicianship and listening skills. Period instruments at Baroque pitch from the University’s extensive collection are used, and students receive personal instruction on their specific techniques.
