Doha Baroque Ensemble
The Doha Baroque Ensemble was founded in 2011 by professional musicians and is the first and only ensemble of its kind in the Gulf region.
These musicians are baroque music specialists, experts in historical baroque performance and play on authentic baroque instruments.
As well as giving a variety of performances in the style of the period, the Ensemble also aims to develop dialogue between the oriental and western cultures, co-operating with local Arab musicians. This opens up very interesting fields of fusion and cross-over projects.
In the Baroque in Qatar concert series, the Doha Baroque Ensemble has delivered exciting seasons of baroque music to audiences in Qatar since 2014. With international soloists and the Qatar Concert Choir, the Ensemble performs operas, oratorios and chamber music, in celebration of the baroque period of music as a whole.
