Baroque Music Montana brings an international cast of musicians who specialize in early music to intimate venues in rural areas, as well as a summer workshop in Bozeman, to present entertaining tales and tunes. Musicians include Bozeman Symphony concertmaster Carrie Krause, Londoner Davina Clarke on baroque violin, Nate Helgeson on baroque bassoon based in Portland, and John Lenti on lute. The group will appear this summer at the Ottawa Chamber Music Festival, and has performed on series from Seattle to Syracuse.

Davina Clarke | baroque violin
Davina made her Wigmore Hall concerto debut with Rachel Podger in 2014. She has also toured extensively around Europe as co-leader of the European Union Baroque Orchestra, English Baroque Soloists, and the Monteverdi Choir and Orchestra with John Eliot Gardiner.

Carrie Krause | baroque violin
Bozeman Symphony concertmaster Carrie Krause performs as baroque violinist with ensembles across the country and on numerous international series. Last season, Carrie was guest artistic director and concerto soloist with Seattle Baroque in a performance of Vivaldis Four Seasons and performed at the BBC Proms with Apollos Fire.

Nate Helgeson | baroque bassoon
Portlander Nate Helgeson appears regularly with many of North Americas premier period instrument ensembles, such as the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Portland Baroque Orchestra, Pacific Music Works, American Bach Soloists, and the Trinity Baroque Orchestra. He is a founding member of early music ensembles on both coasts.

John Lenti | lute
John Lenti’s playing on theorbo, lute, archlute, and baroque guitar has been described as a joy to behold (Seattle Times) and praised for its nuanced beauty and character (Gramophone), and he regularly deploys his uncommonly big sound (Third Coast Digest) in concert, over the air, and on record to considerable acclaim as a soloist and chamber musician with groups like Seattle Baroque, Portland Baroque Orchestra, American Bach Soloists, Magnificat, Mercury Baroque, the Newberry Consort, the New World Symphony, and Seraphic Fire.
