The CWRU Baroque Orchestra provides an opportunity for Case and CIM students to receive practical, pre-professional training in the burgeoning field of 17th- and 18th-century performance practice. The orchestra rehearses twice weekly and generally presents two concerts each semester. Each program concentrates on a particular aspect of Baroque ensemble music: for instance, the music around J S Bach,17th-century Italian ensemble music, or French composers under the influence of Italian musical taste. Some programs draw upon the resources of local singers and instrumentalists trained in early techniques.
