The region’s only professional period instrument orchestra, Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado, presents the musical riches of the 17th and 18th centuries in “A Taste for Baroque,” from the orchestra’s Masterworks Series. With a virtuosic concerto from Telemann’s Table Music as the main course, the rest of the musical menu will be decided by audience voting. Guest artist Adam Knight Gilbert on recorder and violinist Martin Davids lead the orchestra in a program of familiar Baroque favorites, inspired improvisations and rarely performed gems.
The Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado was founded by Artistic Director Frank Nowell, debuting in the fall of 2005 with a program titled, “The Birth of the Orchestra.” Since that first performance, the orchestra has quickly established itself as a unique and vital presence in Colorado’s performing arts scene. In addition to performing throughout the metropolitan Denver area and in Colorado mountain communities, the orchestra has recorded three albums; “Cornucopia,” “Forte e Dolce” and the newly released “Corelli's Circle.”
“No group has done more in the past five years to freshen and energize Denver’s classical-music scene than the Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado,” The Denver Post has noted.
Tickets start at $20 and are available at 303-987-7845, Lakewood.org/LCCPresents or the Lakewood Cultural Center Box Office, 470 S. Allison Parkway (Wadsworth Boulevard and West Alameda Avenue).
