About Arion Orchestre Baroque
Founded in 1981, Arion Orchestre Baroque is the only early music orchestra on period instruments in Quebec, and a leader in their field in North America. Led by the enlightened artistic vision of flutist Claire Guimond, the orchestra has won several prizes and grants, and offers a prestigious Montreal concert series featuring more than twenty musicians and with the participation of internationally known guest conductors. The quality and the delicacy of its readings have been approved unanimously during tours in Japan, the United States, Europe, and Mexico, while its impressive discography of 29 titles in chamber ensembles or orchestras continues to dazzle audiences in Quebec as well as internationally.
