Bourbon Baroque | Louisville's Period Instrument Ensemble
Founded in the summer of 2007 by harpsichordist John Austin Clark and baroque violinist Nicolas Fortin, Bourbon Baroque is a period instrument ensemble based in Louisville, Kentucky that specializes in the historically informed performance of 17th and 18th century music.
Through inter-related arts collaborations and with a sensitivity for the modern audience, Bourbon Baroque performs regularly throughout the year in a variety of venues, often collaborating with other transformative and innovative organizations such as Moving Collective, Choral Arts Society of Louisville, Kentucky Opera, Louisville Youth Choir, and Squallis Puppeteers.
Based on a given program, Bourbon Baroque can be heard in chamber, orchestral, and choral/operatic settings. Be a part of Louisville's new vibrant musical initiative and discover the energy and dance as the music of the Baroque resounds in our minds, bodies, and in our slow-sipped bourbon.
The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, provides operating support to Bourbon Baroque with state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
