Founded in 2000, BaroQue Across the River, a Brooklyn, New York-based early music ensemble, is dedicated to bringing unique programming of 18th century masterpieces to a 21st century audience. Their mission is to perform concerts on original instruments in historic settings around the greater Metropolitan area as well as touring. Their concert venues have been museums, historical societies, mansions, churches, community centers, and well-known early music concert series. Since 2003, they have partnered with the Brooklyn Historical Society offering public concerts in conjunction with their exhibits and celebrations. They were among a select group of artists chosen as New York?s finest early music ensembles performing at the New York Times Center, as part of GEMS Early Music/Early Season series. For several seasons, they have performed for ARTEK?s Midtown Concert Series, held at St. Bartholomew?s Church and currently at Immanuel Lutheran Church. Other performances include Mount Vernon Museum, the Bruce Museum, Music on the Heights at the famed Plymouth Church of the Pilgrims, The Wyckoff House Museum, Akwaaba Mansion, Lefferts House in Prospect Park and Brooklyn?s Borough Hall. In addition to returning for a concert on the Midtown Concert Series, the group?s 2010-11 season will include concerts at Brooklyn?s Quaker Meeting House, Tenri Cultural Institute, and for the Fullerton Friends of Music series in Los Angeles, California, in celebration of Early Music America?s 25th Anniversary
