Baroque Ensembles at Prep

Aldo Abreu, Baroque Ensembles Director

NEC Preparatory School offers an array of Baroque Ensembles, consisting of up to 20 members each, which play music composed before 1750. Students play on modern instruments, but learn about Baroque technique and aesthetic.

Please choose from the options below for more information.

Audition Information

The NEC Prep Baroque Ensembles hold auditions each May for the following academic year. Baroque Ensemble auditions are not held for ensembles, rather students are placed into an orchestra based on their audition. We begin scheduling May auditions in March of each year.
