Dorian Baroque is one of New York’s most exciting early music ensembles performing orchestral, chamber, and operatic music on period instruments. The ensemble was founded as a means for musicians of diverse musical paths to come together and explore the possibilities of historical performance. The organization’s unique philosophy to music making focuses on celebrating the versatility of historical instruments while adhering to the principles of baroque artistry – opulence, exuberance, dissonance, and ornate grandeur. Since its debut in 2012, Dorian Baroque has collaborated with some of the most distinguished early music specialists and organizations in the field and continues to flourish in the growing movement of historical performance practice that has taken New York City by storm. The Monday night “Lobby Series” showcases local artists performing music, dance, spoken word, and other art forms for 100-125 guests in our Grand Foyer. With few stages uptown, the series is an important way for local artists to share work with neighbors and try out new material. Donations are appreciated and proceeds go to United Palace’s programs.
