Harvard Baroque Chamber Orchestra

The Harvard Baroque Chamber Orchestra (HBCO) is a small chamber orchestra dedicated to bringing back to life the vivid rhetoric and dancing rhythms of baroque music. It was founded by Dr. Murray Somerville (Gund University Organist and Choirmaster, 1990-2003) and baroque violinist Robert Mealy ‘85, now a professor at Yale University.

The orchestra rehearses each week in the sanctuary of the Memorial Church, using the church’s set of baroque bows and instruments from the Early Instrument Collection of the music department.

HBCO’s Harvard members are joined by students and recent graduates of the New England Conservatory, the Boston Conservatory, Boston University and the Longy School of Music.
