A Musical Feast

Music of the Baroque hosted its annual gala on Saturday, October 21, 2023, at the Fairmont Chicago.

This year, we honored two longtime friends of the ensemble were honored: acclaimed sculptor Richard Hunt and arts advocate Joan Harris.

The inaugural MUSIC OF THE BAROQUE AWARD was presented to Joan Harris in celebration of the 20th anniversary of MOB performing at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance.

With the support of Sipi Metals Corp., Music of the Baroque commissioned sculptor Richard Hunt to create the award, which will be presented biennially to individuals who have had a significant impact on Music of the Baroque or the wider world of Baroque music performance.

In recognition of Hunt’s lifelong support, Music of the Baroque presented a beautifully framed 1975 concert poster to his daughter Cecilia.
