About the Yale Baroque Ensemble

The Yale Baroque Ensemble, directed by baroque violinist Robert Mealy, is a postgraduate trio sonata ensemble of two violins, cello, and keyboard dedicated to the highest level of study and performance of the Baroque repertoire. Using the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments’ set of new baroque instruments, members of the Ensemble go through an intensive one-year program of study, immersing themselves in the chamber and solo repertoire from 1600 to 1785 to create idiomatic and virtuosic performances of this music. The Yale Baroque Ensemble is presented in a series of concerts each year, including a special appearance at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall as part of the Yale in New York series and an Italian tour with Yale Schola Cantorum. As resident ensemble of the Collection of Musical Instruments, the Yale Baroque Ensemble performs recitals each term at 15 Hillhouse Avenue, as well as in Morse Recital Hall, the main venue of the Yale School of Music.
