Bach, Vivaldi, and Handel are a few of the composers whose works you can expect to hear during a Music of the Baroque concert season, but the company also sometimes ventures into pre- and post-Baroque musical periods. Music of the Baroque is comprised of sixty of Chicago’s finest singers and instrumentalists. The members of the chorus have careers in opera, teaching and giving recitals, while members of the orchestra perform in many other musical groups and ensembles. Since 2002, the orchestra has been under the musical direction of Jane Glover, who is in demand as a guest conductor all over the world and has become a major face in the Chicago classical music scene.
