Wine as Classical Music Outreach (or, "With Baroque music comes Baroque responsibility")


On Sunday, August 2, 2015, at 3:00 PM, we will be performing a program called
Tasting Notes: Grand Cru Baroque at Northwest Cellars.

Sample the exceptional Reserve wines of Northwest Cellars and enjoy live music by Bach, Blavet, Jacquet de la Guerre, and more performed by Kim Pineda, baroque flute, Gus Denhard, lute and theorbo, and Henry Lebedinsky, harpsichord.

"Baroque music blends the energy of Bluegrass, the soul of R&B, and the intellectual depth of Classical music. Early Music Underground's Tasting Notes programs are the perfect way to enjoy great wine and great music, an unforgettable way to experience the finer things in life."

New Name and Performance Model

Hello everyone!

The ensemble known as Baroque Northwest now goes by the name Grand Cru Baroque. We are still the same organization, the only change is the name of the performing ensemble. Our name is not the only change. We've adopted an 18th-century performance model, wherein our concerts will be presented after we have raised adequate funds for each project.

After sixteen years of a public concert subscription series we are changing our performance model. We will still give public concerts in the Seattle area, as well as in Oregon, but our current focus is fundraising for recording projects and concerts based on each recording.

We are now formally soliciting contributions for a recording project.

Project 1: Michel Blavet (1700-1765), Troisième livre de sonates (1740). Sonatas for flute and basso continuo.

Thank you for your continued investment in the arts.
