Baroque Orchestra of Maine, also known as BOOM, was founded in 2010 with the mission to engage and educate a wide audience in rural Downeast Maine about baroque period instrument performance by presenting concerts in accessible, eclectic, non-traditional concert venues. This non profit ensemble has been bringing joy and education to the area ever since with their dynamic and engaging concerts.
Artistic director, Heidi Powell, baroque violinist, of BOOM with her colleague Max Treitler on baroque cello will present a program of music featuring works by Bach, Biber, Schmelzer & Matteis. They will also share with the audience about their specialized instruments, music history, the composers and the beauty and depth of these masterpieces.
