Join us in bringing great early music to Nashville

As Nashville's premier period instrument ensemble, we are dedicated to performing great music from the Baroque period, whether that means favorites such as Vivaldi's Gloria, or an innovative Cinco de Mayo program of Baroque music from the New World.

None of this would be possible without the generous support of our donors, and this season we are very excited to announce a special matching gift - the first $5000 of donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous supporter of MCB.

We believe that our period performance approach helps connect us to the composers of the past, with what they wanted to convey to their audience. We seek to learn about how music was performed so that we can better share with our audiences the original color and passion of the music.

So as you consider your year-end giving, please consider a tax-deductible donation to MCB -- your gift will help us bring new ideas about great Baroque music to Nashville for years to come. We wish you a Happy New Year and loook forward to seeing you at our concerts in 2015.

"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."
