Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra
February 5, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Acclaimed as an interpreter of an extensive range of classical music; English-born conductor Nicholas McGegan was appointed Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for “services to music overseas” by Queen Elizabeth in 2010. McGegan has been the Music Director of the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra since 1985. He established it as the leading period performance ensemble in the United States. The Philharmonia is devoted to capturing the spirit and unique sound of music from Baroque to early Romantic periods, by using authentic instruments and stylistic conventions. American violinist Rachel Barton Pine will join the orchestra for the rarely performed Violin Concerto in D major of violinist Franz Clement.
