Miriam Scholz-Carlson is a founding member of Glorious Revolution Baroque and plays regularly with both the Lyra Baroque Orchestra and the Bach Society of Minnesota. This season she will also be performing with the Newberry Consort in Chicago. Miriam counts David Douglass and Marc Destrubé as her most significant teachers of baroque violin. She graduated from St. Olaf College with a B.M. in violin performance and went on to train as an Alexander Technique teacher with Cathy Madden and David Gorman.

In addition to teaching classes at St. Olaf College, Miriam maintains a large private studio. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband and three daughters.

Lindsey Bordner is a native of the Twin Cities, and holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Minnesota where she studied with Sally O’Reilly. Lindsey also completed a Master of Music in violin performance and chamber music from the University of Michigan, where she studied with Yehonatan Berick.

Lindsey has a passion for chamber music, which has led her to such endeavors as premieres of new works and performing in electronic music festivals, as well as keen interest in early music and studying Baroque performance practice. Currently, her main performing outlets are the award-winning Minneapolis bluegrass band No Man’s String Band and the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra. As a founding member of string quartet Thalia Strings, Lindsey has traveled the world performing on cruise ships. A fan of many genres of music and collaboration of all types, she has been known to record with hip-hop artists, compose for singer-songwriters, dabble in jazz, co-perform with dancers, and arrange popular tunes for strings.

Lindsey has had the honor of participating in such music festivals as the American Bach Soloists Academy, Music Academy of the West, the Montecito Music Festival, Bravo!, and the Castleman Quartet Programs. She enjoys sharing her training and passion for music with audiences and students while continuing to pursue her love of artistic collaboration in any way she finds spontaneous, exciting, and meaningful.

Charles Asch performs cello recitals, chamber music recitals, and with orchestral ensembles in the Twin Cities and throughout Minnesota. He performs on a German baroque cello from the early 1700s, and a modern cello by Gary Davis in New England, 1996. He has performed several recitals focusing on the Baroque repertoire, featuring Sonatas by Boccherini, Vivaldi, Lanzetti and Geminiani, as well as solo cello works by J.S. Bach and Dall’ Abaco. His 19th-20th century repertoire includes sonatas by Poulenc, Debussy, Britten and Beethoven.

He received his Master of Music degree from Juilliard in 2011, where he studied with Richard Aaron and Fred Sherry. He recently completed his doctoral thesis at the University of Minnesota, where he studied with Tanya Remenikova.

One of the most prominent and influential modern masters of harpsichord and fortepiano, Jacques Ogg performs worldwide as a soloist and continuo player. He was a member of one of the world’s leading period-instrument ensembles, the Orchestra of the 18th Century, directed by the late Frans Brüggen, and also worked with Baroque orchestras in Salamanca and Sevilla, Spain. Highly sought after as a pedagogue, he is a harpsichord professor at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague, one of the world’s foremost institutes for early music. Mr. Ogg co-directs the International Baroque Instrumental Program, an intensive summer music course in the Twin Cities, and has been the artistic director of the Lyra Baroque Orchestra since 2000. His discography includes more than 60 recordings with labels such as Philips, Sony, EMI, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, and Glossa.
