Let’s Bow Baroque!
As part of our new “Let’s Bow Baroque” initiative, ABO is making available to students and area ensembles our set of 18th century style baroque training bows, in order to promote further discovery in period style musicianship. These bows are available to musicians at no cost on a first come first serve basis. For string players who are new to baroque bow technique, we recommend looking over Judy Tarling’s Baroque String Playing for Ingenious Learners, or similar texts, or getting some tutorial feedback from baroque players, to make the most of the experience (we can help put you in touch with those players). Feel free to contact ABO to request to borrow the bows.
