“Boise Baroque offers a delightful opportunity to perform the wonderful repertoire written for chamber orchestra. I really enjoy having that intimate feel of chamber music where we musicians feel such a close connection in our music making. It is a kind of music making that cannot happen in larger orchestras, and it is truly a labor of love.”
