Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra

The mission of the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra to perform and promote music of the 17th and 18th centuries using period instruments and historically informed performance practices. We believe in enriching, educating, and inspiring the Indiana community and beyond by fostering connections between the past and the present.

Founded in 1997, the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra is the only period orchestra of its kind in Central and Southern Indiana. The members of the group perform on instruments built between about 1600 and 1750, or replicas thereof, including instruments not in common use today, such as theorbo, violone, sackbut, wooden one-keyed flutes, valveless trumpets, and harpsichord. These practices allow audiences to hear pre-Classical music in performances modeled after events during the composers' lifetime.
