As Sacramento Baroque Soloists gets ready to launch our 22nd season, we are preparing for some exciting changes as Music Director and founder Lisa Lawson hands over leadership to our beloved violinist, Laura Jeannin. Laura leads the ensemble into a new era of growth and opportunity as we pave the way to bring this inspiring historical music to audiences of the future.

Sacramento Baroque Soloists are dedicated to creating vibrant, engaging performances of music from the 17th to 19th Centuries. We have developed a local reputation for quality and compelling programming. Inevitably, audience members leave these intimate concerts feeling moved and inspired.

The ensemble was formed in 2001 and has performed yearly subscription series since 2004. In 21 seasons we have produced over 100 subscription concerts and many outreach concerts. Concerts have had three to twelve performers, performing works from Uccellini and Gabrielli to Lully, from Vivaldi to Biber and Bach. Works performed range from solo sonatas to Concerto Grossi. While many of our professional performers are based in the Sacramento region, we have also featured notable soloists from throughout California.

Sacramento Baroque Soloists includes education as one of its essential components. In addition to our extensively researched program notes, we include interns in some performances. The ensemble has taught classes and workshops at Davis High School, UC Davis, and the Sacramento Waldorf School, and has donated concert tickets to organizations including the Sacramento Youth Symphony, Alliance Francaise, Sac State Retirees Association, Wind, Camellia Symphony, Oakland School for the Arts, and Sacramento Waldorf School. 

Sacramento Baroque Soloists performs a two to four-concert season in multiple venues, including our primary venues, historic St. Paul's Episcopal Church in downtown Sacramento and the Scott Skillman Recital Hall at Harris Center at Folsom Lake College.

Sacramento Baroque Soloists has also produced pre-recorded virtual concerts, a documentary to accompany their CD release "Viva Vivaldi," and several in-person/live-streamed concerts which are all available to the public on YouTube. We look forward to exploring new ways of keeping great Baroque music alive in our region.
