Since 1985, the Lyra Baroque Orchestra has been presenting historically informed, seventeenth- and eighteenth-century musical performances to diverse regional and international audiences, using period instruments to provide a unique musical experience.


Under Artistic Director Jacques Ogg, the orchestra’s core activity is an annual concert series of five programs, each performed in St. Paul and Rochester, and then adapted for a Sunday matinee Family Concert. In this 30th season 2014-2015, we look forward to sharing memories and contemplating the future, bright with exciting possibilities.
