Formed in 2002, Belsize Baroque is a leading amateur baroque orchestra. It comprises young professionals, students, and accomplished amateur baroque players. The orchestra performs on period instruments in an historically informed style. It collaborates regularly with leading baroque directors to give orchestral performances, and performs baroque and classical works with choral groups.
The orchestra showcases the abilities of talented college students and young professional musicians, providing these players with the opportunity to perform with top directors and an experienced baroque orchestra. It runs an annual scholarship programme.
Our next concert
Dear Friends and Supporters,
This year the orchestra turns twenty years old, and we’re in the middle of a celebratory year! We have two large choral projects: we performed Bach’s Magnificat and Ascension Oratorio at St Peter’s in May, and Bach’s Mass in B Minor will be at Southwark Cathedral in December. In July Catherine Martin directed our special concert and anniversary celebration, and will direct us again on September 25th at St Peter’s.
