La Grande Bande 2019-2020 Season

La Grande Bande strives to present innovative, unique, and inspiring musical programs played on the instruments that premiere audiences might have heard. LGB is composed of musicians from across the United States and from around the world who are specialists in the field of Early Music—music written between c. 1600-1800—and who play on historical instruments and sing in an historical manner.

We aim to present “masterworks” alongside lesser-known compositions, illustrating the extensive musical production during the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries. Education is crucial to our mission, be it through program notes, through directed-educational events, or another method.

We see incredible value in resurrecting the music written by the great masters of our past; it's a historical, cultural, and musical lesson rolled into one.

La Grande Bande is a period instrument orchestra and chorus founded as a non-profit organization by Michael Thomas Asmus in 2011.

We need your help. 

Our 2019-2020 season has been carefully designed to provide the local community, and its schools with a wide variety of musical and educational programming spread over the course of five (5) concerts. With concerts as intimate as a solo performance and as impressive as a 20-member ensemble, there is bound to be something for everyone to enjoy this season!
