About the Ensemble The Yale Baroque Ensemble, directed by baroque violinist Robert Mealy, is a postgraduate ensemble at the Yale School of Music dedicated to the highest level of study and performance of the Baroque repertoire. Using the Yale Collection of Musical Instrumentsâ€™ set of new baroque instruments, members of the Ensemble go through an intensive one-year program of study, immersing themselves in the chamber and solo repertoire from 1600 to 1785 to create idiomatic and virtuosic performances of this music. The Yale Baroque Ensemble is presented in a series of concerts each year, including a special appearance last spring at Carnegieâ€™s Weill Hall as part of the Yale at Carnegie series and an Italian tour with the Yale Schola Cantorum. As resident ensemble of the Collection of Musical Instruments, the Yale Baroque Ensemble performs recitals each term at 15 Hillhouse Avenue.
