The Austin Baroque Orchestra & Chorus will present a five-concert series in 2014-15 comprised of two centuries' worth of works for orchestra and chorus. From concerti to chanzonetas, suites to motets, and a full oratorio, there will be something for every early music lover! In addition to our home venue of First Presbyterian Church in Austin, we'll also be appearing at St. John's Lutheran Church and Mission Concepción, both in San Antonio.|
