Leighton Concert Hall


Dedicated to the music of the 17th- and 18th-centuries, the Venice Baroque Orchestra is known for its concert and operatic period performances. This ensemble has helped rediscover works of the Baroque but has also helped debut contemporary works.

Nicola Benedetti, one of the most sought after violinists of her generation for her innate musicianship and dynamic presence, is reunited with conductor Andrea Marcon and the Venice Baroque Orchestra for a coast-to-coast tour across the U.S. and Canada.
