Devon Baroque has established a strong reputation as the principal orchestra in the South West specialising in baroque and early classical music, played on period instruments and in appropriate style. The orchestra’s repertoire ranges from Biber to Bach and Boyce with performances in cathedrals, churches, concert halls and small, private venues. It has worked with international soloists such as Emma Kirkby, Michael Chance and Sebastian Comberti and helps to promote young musicians at the start of their careers. In addition to performing from its large repertoire of instrumental music, Devon Baroque collaborates with vocal ensembles and choirs. The size and composition of the orchestra reflects the demands of the repertoire, from a small chamber ensemble to a larger orchestra with wind players.
Devon Baroque promotes understanding of and engagement and active involvement in the world of Baroque music through its education programme, including workshops on Baroque playing style and composer ‘Experience’ weekends at Dartington Hall.
