Performance

Nash Baroque is a period chamber ensemble whose instrumental and vocal repertoire ranges from the early baroque to the classical, with a focus on the French Baroque. The ensemble aims to produce lively performances on 18th century instruments, using original source materials to inform their interpretation.
After debut concerts in July of 2013 to enthusiastic audiences in historical towns along the Connecticut Shoreline, Nash Baroque continues to perform on both the East and West coasts. They have had performances in the Bay area since 2013 in various chamber series and as part of the Berkeley Early Music Festival.
