The program will be free and open to the public, and features the works of such Baroque masters as Johann Sebastian Bach and Georg Philipp Telemann.

Barthold Kuijken will also be performing a master class at DePauw focusing on flute technique and Baroque performance practice. This event will take place in Thompson Recital Hall at 10 a.m. on Monday, February 21.

A native of Belgium, Kuijken is one of the world’s leading performers on the baroque flute. Kuijken regularly appears with such early music specialists as his brothers, Sigiswald (violin) and Wieland (viola da gambist), Paul Dombrecht (oboe) and Gustav Leonhardt (harpsichord). Kuijken plays in the baroque orchestra La Petite Bande and maintains an active schedule as a soloist, conductor and recitalist. These efforts have resulted in concert tours of Europe, North and South America, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Israel and Russia. He is also professor of baroque flute at the Royal Conservatories of Brussels and The Hague. 

Joining Kuijken in the Sunday performance at DePauw will be the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra. Founded in 2004, the ensemble’s mission is to enrich, educate and inspire the Central Indiana community through the performance of 17th and 18th-century music on period instruments. Among the players for this upcoming Greencastle concert are DePauw faculty members Allison Edberg (violin) and Kara Webb (bassoon).
