Praised by critics as “early music turned early magic,” (Boston Musical Intelligencer) and “striking” (Cleveland Classical), The Broken Consort is a professional chamber music ensemble with a story to tell. Several award-winning rising stars – many of them composers - join forces to create passionate, innovative, energetic, and unforgettable programs that balance between daredevil virtuosity and sensual intimacy. Since its founding in 2010, The Broken Consort has performed for enthusiastic audiences in several early music festivals and series across the country. Today, The Broken Consort spends an equal amount of time playing early music, and composing, commissioning, and premiering exciting new compositions.
The Broken Consort’s outreach activities include teaching and performing regularly at leading universities, K-12 schools, and correctional facilities.
This performance will be joined in part by our friends at Pro Musica Tulsae.

Baroque in Tow: Route 66
Route 66 is more than just a highway. Along this storied route was born the cultural history of our nation as people from all walks of life settled along this route bringing with them their families and their dreams, and their music.
From places as distant from each other as Germany, France, and England, communities sprang up along the “Mother Road” and began to meld together a vast array of melodies and musical instruments which Go for Baroque explores and celebrates in one of its most popular programs.
In keeping with Go for Baroque’s acclaimed reputation for presenting serious music in an entertaining manner, the evening features everything from treasured works to whimsical tunes.
Travel with this gifted ensemble along the main street of America with music brought over by those who settled this land. From traditional fiddle tune Back Up and Push and an elegant violin sonata by LeClair, to Scott Joplin’s Solace and Peter Schickele’s Young Man Going West, prepare to get more than your share of kicks on this musical tour of Route 66!
