ABOUT THE MUSICAL ORATORY FOUNDATION
Founded by alumni of the famed Juilliard School, The Musical Oratory Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Escondido, CA. We are dedicated to the dissemination of the European Art Music tradition through high quality concerts, in-depth lectures, and innovative lecture-performances throughout the Southern California region and beyond. Our namesake is the chamber music ensemble Musical Oratory, comprised of accomplished professional singers and instrumentalists.
We have come together for the love of J. S. Bach to perform his Cantatas, both secular and sacred, and to explore their timeless reverberations. We are striving to achieve an exceptionally high level of artistic quality and scholarly engagement, and to provide a cultural experience that is rarely locally available. Other projects currently under way are forays into the body of work of other important composers, and include Chamber Opera and Baroque Dance. Our Summer Baroque Institute on the campus of the University of California in Santa Barbara brings legendary Baroque Music specialists from Europe and the US to perform, coach students, and lecture to a wide audience; and it further combines musical instruction with Baroque Dance, a rare opportunity made possible by our ongoing collaboration with the New York Baroque Dance Company.
