The Baroque Chamber Ensembles are part of the diverse performance culture of the Historical Performance Practice program at Case Western Reserve University. The ensembles each consist of 3-8 students and explore repertoire from the late 16th century to ca. 1800. The ensembles perform once or twice per semester in venues on and off the CWRU campus, and often collaborate in larger projects with other groups such as Baroque Orchestra, Collegium Musicum, and Baroque Dance Ensemble.

Participation in Baroque Chamber Ensembles is open to all CWRU students in the Historical Performance Practice program and CWRU/CIM students who have been in the Baroque Orchestra for at least one semester. Auditions are held the first week of the semester during the class meeting time.
Enrollment permissions are granted in the Student Information System (SIS) following a successful audition or during the first week of class. Once course permissions have been granted (before the Drop/Add period ends) students should return to their SIS account to register in the appropriate MUEN course.
All performances held in the Maltz Performing Arts Center as part of the Silver Hall Concert Series or in Harkness Chapel as part of the CWRU Music Concert Series are live-streamed for free concurrently with the posted concert time. All concerts occur in eastern time.
