Period Orchestras
Chameleon Arts Baroque Orchestra

Chameleon Arts Baroque Orchestra provides choral societies across the country with the opportunity to be accompanied on period instruments, as intended by the composer, when performing the masterpieces of the Baroque period.  Individually the members of the orchestra are acknowledged specialists in period performance practice and continue to work, often as principals, with the leading 'original instrument' orchestras, including the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, The Academy of Ancient Music, The King's Consort, English Baroque Soloists, and Gabrieli Consort and Players.

The Chameleon Arts Orchestras were formed over twenty years ago by Chameleon Arts Management to answer the need of Choral Societies nationwide for quality performances of the great works for choir and orchestra.  From Monteverdi to Bach and Handel, the Chameleon Arts Baroque Orchestra performs in Churches, Cathedrals and Concert Halls throughout the country and can regularly be seen in concert at venues such as St Johns Smith Square, Worcester Cathedral, Sherborne Abbey, Ripon Cathedral, Romsey Abbey, St Martin-in-the-Fields and Snape Maltings.  

For a free quotation, just let us know the date required, the venue and the repertoire to be performed.  It's also helpful to know the approximate number of singers in the choir so that we can tailor our quotation to suit your specific needs.  We can also provide the orchestral material if you want us to.  Just let us know when you make your enquiry.
