Travel and Change juxtaposes philosophical musings and music from the Baroque era, continuing Apeiron Baroque’s interest in sparking interesting connections between seemingly unrelated fields of expertise.

About Apeiron Baroque

Apeiron Baroque was launched in 2022 by Early Music specialists, John Ma (Violin/Viola/d’amore) and Marie Searles (fortepiano/harpsichord). The company presents high-quality concerts that are honest, raw, and passionate in a casual atmosphere. Repertoire ranges from the early Baroque (c.1700) through to the early Romantic (c.1850) performed on period instruments in historically appropriate styles.

Performances are designed to be entertaining, informative, and accessible to all ages and backgrounds; new audience members should not fear the experience of a Baroque concert!
