UVA Baroque Orchestra

Fall 2023
November 20, 2023 - 8:00pm
Old Cabell Hall on the UVA Lawn
$10 / $9 UVA Faculty & Staff / $5 students / Free for UVA Students who reserve in advance

The University of Virginia Department of Music presents the Baroque Orchestra on Monday, November 20th at 8pm in Old Cabell Hall.  The mostly 17th-century program will include Henry Purcell’s Abdelazer suite and works by Heinrich Biber, Biagio Marini, and William Young.  Tickets are $10 for general admission, $9 UVA Faculty & Staff, $5 students, and free for UVA Students who reserve in advance. Tickets are available at the Arts Box Office by visiting artsboxoffice.virginia.edu, calling (434) 924-3376 or at Old Cabell Hall one hour prior to the performance. 

The Baroque Orchestra, directed by faculty violinist and Director of Performance David Sariti, presents dynamic, vital performances of music from the 17th and 18th centuries with the instruments and performance practices for which it was written, without a conductor. Period instruments from the University’s extensive collection are used, with historic pitch and temperaments, and students receive personal instruction on their specific techniques.  The learning experience extends to the audience, as well, who can expect to hear music by great yet unfamiliar composers, presented in a way that questions modern perceptions of music performance.

Old Cabell Hall is located on the south end of UVA’s historic lawn, directly opposite the Rotunda. (map) Parking is available in the central grounds parking garage on Emmet Street, in the C1 parking lot off McCormick Rd, and in the parking lots at the UVA Corner.  Handicap parking is available in the small parking lot adjacent to Bryan Hall.

All programs are subject to change.
