Sligo Baroque Orchestra

Sligo Baroque Orchestra

Sligo Baroque Orchestra was formed (as Sligo Early Music Ensemble) in 1990. It has a membership of professional, student and amateur instrumentalists and combines a focus on music from the Baroque with a readiness for innovation. During the last 12 months the SBO’s activities have included an innovative combination of contemporary dance with the performance of arias and duets from Handel’s Floridante; several appearances in Sligo’s Informal Music Afternoons, one of which married the music of Rameau to the reading of a children’s picture book; A Winter’s Tale Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater; their annual Student Soloist Concert and a collaboration with African band Tropicana Musica.
