Announcing our 2020-2021 Season

Welcome to our third official season of Baroque Music Montana!

No one could have predicted the turn of events that cut seasons short and shut down artistic performances across the nation. While the future remains uncertain, it is a gift to be a small and nimble organization.

Our website will be up to date regarding necessary adaptation, and BaMM will honor any ticketing refunds associated with Covid-19.

With a bit of risk and rework, BaMM was able to stage small, outdoor, and distanced concerts over the summer in backyards, porches, and parks in Columbus, Shephard, Helena, McLeod, and White Sulphur Springs, create streamed material in collaboration with the WMPAC and Bozeman Arts Live, and host our annual performance practice workshop on porches across Bozeman. Albeit distanced, it was so deeply satisfying to be with each other and share in music.

This season, we’re tremendously excited to make history with the first period instrument commercial recording created in Montana. Thanks to your tremendous support, our Kickstarter exceeded all expectation in reaching our goal in just 3 days! In preparing this program, we’ll visit new communities along the Hi-Line, and present this program safely in large resonant spaces. Early February sees the second installment of Youthful Splendor, featuring young musicians in the unique and valuable experience of leading an orchestra. Late March centers around the incredible Sara Levy, whom we credit with preserving so many beloved pieces in our repertoire today, and affords BaMM the coveted opportunity to play a brilliant Mendelssohn quartet! In late May and early June, a number of events celebrating J.S. Bach and our community will be staged across Gallatin Valley (possibly in celebration of a birthday). We are proud that Baroque Music Montana has been invited to record  an episode of Emmy winning PBS television show 11th and Grant, which will feature the haunting voice of a countertenor in a July tour. In August we feature my inspiration for picking up the baroque violin, Julie Andrijeski, with our annual workshop and Will You be My Valentini? Or The Little Ragamuffin, a light-hearted program tracing Corelli’s successor.

Looking ahead to 2021-22, we have another exciting slate of regular concert programs, a landmark recording hot off the press, plus anticipation of ambitious Mozartartian undertakings!

We hope you’ll join us, and thank you for your support.
