Baroque Violin Faculty
Our historical performance faculty are accomplished teachers, historians, and musicians, who maintain active performance schedules, both on and off campus.
We work towards shining a light onto music and a story that has yet to be uncovered or has been forgotten, and to craft where Historical Performance Practice belongs on the international stage today.
