Genesis Baroque is a vibrant Melbourne-based period instrument ensemble founded by Artistic Director, Jennifer Kirsner, and directed by renowned violinist Lucinda Moon (former concertmaster of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra). The ensemble comprises some of Australia’s finest historically-informed performers, and aims to explore the spontaneity, imagination, and richness of music from the 17th and 18th century.
Genesis Baroque is a rich addition to the Melbourne’s diverse and lively arts scene – a distinguished, locally-based period chamber orchestra at the forefront of the genre.
Following a sell-out first concert in 2018, the ensemble will present a 3-concert series in 2019 collaborating with several renowned expatriate soloists now based in Europe.
The ensemble is seeking philanthropic support to enable us to present these concerts, providing a rare concert opportunity for Melbourne audiences to hear some of Australia and Europe’s best performers in an intimate, contemporary performance space at Fortyfivedownstairs.
Donations will enable us to present our concerts by covering the costs of performers, and venue hire, and production overheads. We are committed to values of respect and integrity, both of which underpin our commitment to our players and to our audience. These values mean that we are committed to appropriate remuneration for our core artists and guest directors. Our values also assure that we will provide concert experiences of uncompromising scholarship, elegance, vivacity, and creativity.
