Hailed as “truly excellent” and “studded with stars in the making” (New York Times), New York Baroque Incorporated (NYBI) is a conductorless orchestra of period instruments in New York City, bringing vital, informed, and fresh performances of a wide range of 17th and 18th-century repertoire, as well as creating a vibrant landscape for collaborations between historical performance and living composers. NYBI has collaborated with renowned soloists including Richard Egarr, Vivica Genaux, Monica Huggett, and has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Spoleto Festival USA. Striving to make period instruments a living art form, NYBI has premiered works by Nico Muhly, Hollis Taylor, and Huang Ruo. The orchestra also dedicates itself to bring to life unknown works of the Baroque, and has revived and presented modern-day premieres of Cavalli’s Veremonda (1652), Aliotti’s Santa Rosalia (1687) and Seckendorff’s Proserpina (1777).
In 2017, NYBI launched a partnership with the Trinity Wall Street Choir and presented the popular free weekly concert series “Bach At One”. Fall 2017 will see a new collaboration with The Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys as NYBI teams up with the group as their house baroque orchestra.
NYBI’s 2017-18 season highlights include Handel’s Messiah with The Saint Thomas Choir, a program of French dance music with baroque violist Robert Mealy at the Met Museum, and an American premiere of “M Stabat Mater” with Inbal Oshman Dance Group presented by Peak Performances.
