Violinist Allison Edberg Nyquist leads Music City Baroque on a sonic tour of old Dresden

Our opening concert received a great review from Steven Sloan over at ArtsNash. Thank you to everyone who came to the performance, we had a wonderful crowd, and stay tuned for news about our upcoming coffee concert in February! Here are a few highlights:

"The afternoon’s concert proved that historically informed performance can yield fascinating stories and vibrant, engaging musical experiences"

"Nyquist’s performance was perfectly balanced in its effect ... always striking the perfect mood."

"I was struck by the value and vibrancy of historically informed performance ... an opportunity to learn about that which came before us — a musical experience as edifying as it is satisfying."

Special Event: Owl's Hill Nature Sanctuary

Owl's Hill Nature Sanctuary

The crisp Fall air has inspired Music City Baroque to head to the woods — join us for music that celebrates nature, and more specifically, birds! MCB is excited to team up with Owl's Hill Nature Sanctuary for this special event.

Set on 160 acres in Brentwood, Owl's Hill is dedicated to protecting our land and wildlife, and to educating people about the importance of nature in our city and our lives. This concert, held in the education facility on the Sanctuary, celebrates that mission with a performance of beautiful Baroque music (some avian-inspired), wine, and delicious desserts.

Owl's Hill Benefit Concert

Owl's Hill Nature Sanctuary
545 Beech Creek Road, Brentwood
