Baroque music is in vogue again! Nuova Pratica presents an afternoon of Baroque chamber music carefully composed by its members. This particular concert, our first on the Midtown Concerts series, will feature newly written trio sonatas in Baroque style by Nicola Canzano, sinfonias by Nathan Mondry, as well as music by Charlie Reed, Rebecca Nelson, and Ryan Cheng.

Ensembles of the past almost never played music not written by one of their own. In this respect, Nuova Pratica is the most historical early music ensemble currently in existence. We shamelessly and skillfully write music in Baroque style — you wouldn't even know we're not dead! Our music is studied in universities including the University of Oregon and has been performed at prestigious Baroque festivals including Thiré. Our group is an outpouring of our love for this music as well as fascinating display of the skills endowed by a good education in early music, and an exciting new direction within early music.
