Doha Baroque Ensemble
The Doha Baroque Ensemble was founded in 2011 by professional musicians and is the first and only ensemble of its kind in the Gulf Region. These musicians are Baroque music specialists, experts in historical Baroque performance practice and they play on actual Baroque instruments. In addition to giving lively performances in the style of this period, the Ensemble’s goal is to develop dialogue between the oriental and occidental cultures, co-operating with local Arab musicians. This opens up very interesting fields of fusion and cross-over projects. They frequently perform together with the Qatar Concert Choir.
