About Third Coast Baroque
Third Coast Baroque features “Chicago's most accomplished period instrumentalists and singers” (Chicago Tribune). Under the artistic direction Rubén Dubrovsky, TCB reframes how audiences experience early music through dynamic performances, collaborations, and education. “Call it baroque musicology made painless” (Chicago Tribune), TCB has been devoted to exploring diverse 17th and 18th century music from around the world since its inception. TCB has presented the Chicago and North American premieres of works by beloved composers and recently rediscovered masters. Drawing upon today’s finest early music specialists, the Third Coast Baroque collective is composed of the TCB Chamber Ensemble, TCB Voices, and TCB Orchestra. Past performances have included collaborations with internationally renowned musicians, including mezzo-soprano Vivica Genaux for a critically acclaimed program of works by Vivaldi. Founded in 2016, TCB engages new and diverse audiences through collaboration with organizations in Chicago and across the country, and through educational enrichment and outreach for music lovers of all ages.
