Baroque Chamber Ensembles

Diverse groups (6-8 per semester) ranging in size from three to eight players meet one to two hours per week to explore repertoire ranging from the late 16th century to ca. 1800. The ensembles generally perform one or two concerts per semester.  The chamber ensembles often collaborate in larger projects with other CWRU ensembles such as the Baroque Orchestra, Collegium, and the Baroque Dance Ensemble.

Baroque Dance

The CWRU Baroque Dance Ensemble was formed to provide an outlet for students to learn and perform 17th- and 18th-century dance. The ensemble meets collectively twice a week and performs, in costume, one to three times per semester. The Baroque Dance Ensemble is open to all students and does not require an audition.
