Baroque Ensemble and Orchestra
The RCM Baroque Ensemble and Orchestra regularly work with leading conductors and are frequently invited to perform at prestigious venues nationally and internationally.
Recent highlights include an annual tour to Italy and visits to Bolivia and Washington, DC, while performances at the RCM include our regular Bach Cantatas series.
At the RCM, solo performers regularly performin various RCM concert venues. There is the opportunity to take part in our weekly concert series in the RCM Museum, which holds a number of important early keyboard, string and woodwind instruments that can be played by students.
RCM students benefit from the RCM’s wide range of international partnerships and collaborations. We enjoy a close association with the Versailles Centre for Baroque Music, which has led to performances at festivals across France and with Sir Roger Norrington at the BBC Proms.
In 2014, members of the RCM Baroque Ensemble accompanied Head of Historical Performance Professor Ashley Solomon to Bolivia to perform at the Bolivian Early Music Festival.
RCM students also participated in a recent exchange with the Sydney Conservatory, including side-by-side performances in London and Sydney.
RCM International Festival of Viols
This much-loved annual festival, which takes place at the RCM every autumn, gives RCM students the chance to perform alongside and learn from some of the world’s most acclaimed violists.
Recent visitors have included Jordi Savall, Christophe Coin, Luca Pianca and Vittorio Ghielmi.
