baroque ensemble

In 2016-2017 I worked to enable expanded early music and chamber music programming at the Maritime Conservatory. This included taking training to tune and maintain the conservatory harpsichords so that they could be used regularly by faculty and students. I also established and co-coached a brand new student Baroque Ensemble. This currently consists of harpsichord, cello (with Baroque bow provided by the Early Music Society of Nova Scotia), soprano, and traverso (Baroque flute). This ensemble has performed at the Maritime Conservatory and at Early Music Society events thus far, and looks forward to further developments and collaborations in 2018-2019.
