NYS Baroque performs music of the Renaissance, Baroque and early Classical periods on period instruments with what the Syracuse Post-Standard hails as "[an] exquisite balance of sound and astounding synchronicity". They are America's only large period-instrument ensemble based outside a metropolitan area.
Led by Artistic Director Heather Miller Lardin with concertmaster Julie Andrijeski, NYS Baroque offers a subscription concert series comprising three programs performed in Ithaca and Syracuse. Repertoire, chosen with our flexible ensemble in mind, ranges from orchestral to choral and chamber music. Orchestral music is performed without conductor.
Now entering its 24th season, NYS Baroque was founded in 1988 by oboist Peter Hedrick and bassoonist Elizabeth Hedrick. The ensemble has a rich and exciting history in the Fingerlakes area and beyond. Awarded Early Music America's "Early Music Brings History Alive" award in 2006, NYS Baroque's Arts in Education program invites yearly collaborations with local teachers and students. Recent guest appearances include performances at the Skaneateles Festival, Indiana Early Music Festival, Handel's Messiah with the choirs of St. Paul's Cathedral in Buffalo and a reconstruction of Jean-Jacques Mouret's 1734 ballet Pygmalion with the New York Baroque Dance Company at Cornell University.Recorded live performances of NYS Baroque are frequently broadcast on Syracuse radio station WCNY FM - sign up for our email list for advance notice!
