About Lyra

The Lyra Baroque Orchestra brings a rare freshness, color, and dimension to the glorious music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries through its performances on period instruments. The region's only baroque orchestra, Lyra combines the talents of renowned local early music specialists and international guest artists, under the inspiring artistic leadership of Jacques Ogg.

Lyra's mission is to inspire and enrich the community through exceptional performances of baroque music on historic instruments.

Our 2017-2018 concert series features glorious music by both already beloved and unfamiliar composers, for strings, winds and voices. Whether you’ve been coming to Lyra concerts for decades or are attending your first concert this year, we welcome you!
