Valencia Baryton Project Pre-concert Talk
7 pm Sunday March 19, 2023

Museum & Archives of Vernon

The Valencia Baryton Project is a trio that centres on the rare early classical instrument, the baryton, accompanied by violin and cello. The baryton has 16 strings – 6 on the front and 10 on the back, played like a harp.

Popular for about a hundred years in the 16th century, the classical baryton was considered the pinnacle of aristocratic instruments and was the preferred instrument of Joseph Haydn’s patron, Prince Esterhazy.

Today the baryton is played by only a handful of people in the world. Come meet and hear this rare instrument in an intimate pre-concert talk with Matt Baker 7 pm Sunday March 19th at the Museum & Archives of Vernon.
