ACRONYM is a classical music ensemble, to be sure, but it is classical music that rocks.

This Baroque band is dedicated to giving modern premieres of the wild instrumental music of the seventeenth century.

Audience members do not need tickets. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. All the concerts will be broadcast live and streamed on WQXR, for those unable to attend in person.

No rain dates.
