Bound by a passion for playing music of the 17th and 18th-Centuries, Heartland Baroque members, Martie Perry and David Wilson, baroque violins, C. Keith Collins, dulcian, Barbara Krumdieck, baroque cello, and William Simms, theorbo and baroque guitar, hail from North Carolina, Indiana, California, and Maryland, and often perform together in other well-known historically-informed period instrument ensembles around the country. Heartland Baroque dives into the baroque musical world with vigor, showing off the immediacy and technical brilliance, the vivacity and profundity, the lilt, complexity, and spontaneity of its composers. Most recently Heartland Baroque completed a residency at the esteemed Avaloch Farm Music Institute, and were featured in concert at the 2018 North Carolina H.I.P. Music Festival. They have also performed concert tours in North Carolina, and have presented concerts at the Boston and Berkeley Early Music Festivals, as well as at the 2015 Early Music Festival for Grace. The group’s debut CD, “The Benevolent Monarch,” was recently released in June of 2022.
