Houston Baroque turns three! On August 7, 2014 at 7:00 P.M., we performed our first concert--Bach cantatas and a keyboard concerto--to an absolutely packed audience. A good memory, a good day!
Our third season, Landmarks, consists of six concerts which feature music of a specific place and time, marking a significant moment in the history of music. Our season concludes with the first Brazos Music Festival in June, a series of outreach concerts to promote early music throughout Brazos County schools and churches.

Houston Baroque's debut album features lesser-known German Baroque sacred devotional music by Buxtehude and Handel. The disc is the first recording of Martin Pasi's organ at First Evangelical Lutheran, Houston. Several genres of baroque music are presented: solo organ works, vocal cantatas, and chamber music. The record showcases the Houston Baroque family: Megan Stapleton and Julia Fox, soprano; Nadia Lesinska and Alan Austin, baroque violin; Jordan Witherspoon, viola da gamba; Bruce Brogdon, lute and theorbo; and Patrick Parker, organ and harpsichord.
