Join us to explore instrumental music from early Latin America, and take a look at the ways that traditional folk instruments can help us understand and re-create this exciting music.

From tiny jungle churches in Bolivia to the cathedrals of Peru, Guatemala, and Mexico, manuscripts of Renaissance and Baroque compositions are being uncovered and brought to modern scholarship and performance. Join us to explore instrumental music from early Latin America, exploring the ways that traditional folk instruments originally introduced by Jesuit missionaries can help us understand and re-create this exciting music!

Great Basin Baroque is a collective of musicians specializing in historically informed performance of European music up to 1800, including collaborations with different folkloric traditions, and applying performance techniques derived from our Early Music practice to our own arrangements of popular music. We seek to maximize accessibility of our shows by performing in free-of-charge public venues, such as the City Library, while supporting professional musicians by seeking grants and sponsors. The core of Great Basin Baroque is the Great Basin Duo, comprised of baroque cellist Eleanor Christman Cox and harpsichordist Loren Carle.

About the library

Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie in conjunction with VCBO Architecture, opened in February 2003 and remains one of the most architecturally unique structures in Utah. This striking 240,000 square-foot structure houses more than 500,000 books and other materials, yet serves as more than just a repository of books and computers. It reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. A six-story curving, walkable wall embraces the public plaza, with shops and services at ground level, reading galleries above, and a 300-seat auditorium. A multi-level reading area along the Glass Lens at the southern facade of the building looks out onto the plaza with stunning views of the city and Wasatch Mountains beyond. The Rooftop Terrace, accessible by walking the Crescent Wall or the elevators, offers a 360-degree view of the Salt Lake Valley. Spiraling fireplaces on four floors resemble a column of flame from the vantage of 200 East and 400 South. The Urban Room between the Library and the Crescent Wall is a space for all seasons, generously endowed with daylight and open to magnificent views.
