Our Lunchtime Classics series returns August 27. Until then we’re featuring some artists who have performed on past episodes.
Bourbon Baroque, a local historically-informed performance (HIP) group, has just announced its new season. Founded in 2007 by harpsichordist John Austin Clark and baroque violinist Nicolas Fortin (photo), Bourbon Baroque: Louisville’s Period Instrument Ensemble specializes in music from the 17th and 18th centuries. Inspired by the art and culture of the House of Bourbon, Bourbon Baroque connects Louisville’s namesake, Louis XVI, through the music of his time. The ensemble often collaborates with other performance groups such as Moving Collective, Kentucky Opera, Louisville Youth Choir, and recently the Squallis Puppeteers.
