Levine_Morse_02SFlying Forms is a baroque chamber music ensemble that is quickly establishing a presence in America’s early music scene. Formed out of a passion for performing early chamber music Flying Forms collaborates with prominent musicians, musicologists and baroque dancers in a wide variety of programs from traditional to experimental. Recent performances have included concerts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Yale University, Symphony Space, (le) Poisson Rouge, and Stony Brook University where the group presented a concert of seven new works commissioned for period instruments. Also of note is Flying Forms’ second appearance at the Boston Early Music Festival in June of 2009 where the group produced and performed, as part of a New York/Boston tour, a fully staged and critically acclaimed production of Henry Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas. In Saint Paul, Minnesota, where the group is based, Flying Forms has performed and taught extensively in local schools, universities, and concert venues. This includes the new space, The Baroque Room, located in downtown Saint Paul, which the group created in 2011 and currently manages. Hailed by harpsichordist Arthur Haas as “the bright future of early music,” Flying Forms is committed to being a presence that transforms communities and inspires expression through excellence in performance, innovative education and creative collaboration.
