This outstanding ensemble of distinguished soloists will bring to us a unique baroque program; their repertoire stretches over more than 250 works in a wide range from early music to more than 25 commissions written for them. The 12-member group of strings, winds and keyboard can increase to twenty with additional guest artists, affording a flexibility to offer compositions seldom heard due to the unusual structure of the instrumentation. Founded in 1957 (that’s not a misprint), the Soloists will have celebrated their 50th anniversary by the time they appear on our stage.
