Preparatory Baroque Ensemble



Aldo Abreu, Director

This small ensemble is open by audition to beginning string and wind players. This ensemble specializes in music from the Baroque and Renaissance periods by composers such as Susato, Attaignant, and Purcell. While ensemble assignments are made by level, not age, most members are in grades 3-9.

Rehearsals: Saturdays, 3-4pm, Carr Organ Room

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.
