Dates: October 21, 2022

Time: 7:00 PM

A turning point in classical music. Let us take you on a joyous journey to where it all began – Italy – the birthplace of the orchestra and the Baroque classical era. Considered to be the one of the most influential periods for modern western music, the Baroque style is marked by fuller and more complex musical compositions, including multiple independent melody lines, performed simultaneously by different instruments, and often incorporating vocals, just as we see in modern symphonic presentations. Featuring guest artists Giancarlo De Lorenzo (Italy), as conductor, and soloist Dragoş Filip, ASO’s principal cellist.
