Albuquerque Baroque Players was formed in the summer of 1997 by six Albuquerque musicians who found that they had in common a desire to play Baroque music on the instruments of the period. They held a common belief that such performances would offer a greater understanding and depth of expression to music written over 250 years ago.
In the intervening years, the ensemble has undergone several personnel changes, but has continued to perform a regular series of concerts. Each series performance is repeated at the Fellowship Christian Reformed Church and the Historic Old San Ysidro Church in Corrales. Special concerts have been held at the Cathedral Church of St. John, First United Methodist Church, the Albuquerque Museum, and the Albuquerque Public Library. To date, ABP has been financial assisted by New Mexico Arts, the City of Albuquerque Urban Enhancement Trust Fund , the Garcia Automotive Group, Van Dyke Software and the Walter A. Brooks & Marilyn Gulley Brooks Foundation, as well as many private sponsors.
