Recognized as one of the premier baroque ensembles in the world, Italy’s Venice Baroque Orchestra brings an all-Italian program, celebrating the rich musical history of their homeland. The Orchestra joins with Grammy nominated mandolinist Avi Avital who is hailed as “explosively charismatic” (New York Times).  The Orchestra receives wide critical acclaim for its concert and opera performances throughout the world and has appeared in more cities in the United States than any other Baroque orchestra in history.
