Thursday at 10:00 pm


This week, Baroque&Before offers early music in settings steeped in history and tradition.

Each year, the Utrecht Early Music Festival draws top performers for a season of concerts set in locations that, in some cases, are as old as the music. Specializing in repertoire from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the Baroque, the festival hosts nearly 100 concerts, spanning 1,000 years of music  in churches and castles throughout the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany.

WFMT is able to offer performances from the Utrecht Early Music Festival through a relationship with the European Broadcasting Union.
