Bourbon Baroque, founded in 2007 in Louisville, Kentucky makes its New York City debut with Off to the Races! on Saturday May 7, 2016, 5:30pm, part of the "Music at the Park" concert series at Park Avenue Christian Church in the Upper East Side. (www.musicattheparkseries.com) The programme is in homage to the ensemble's Kentucky roots featuring "horse rhythmic" music of the Baroque with works by Georg Philipp Telemann, Domenico Corri, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Kentucky songs by Stephen C. Foster and John Jacob Niles arranged for period instruments. Concert guests will be treated to a LIVE feed from the Churchill Downs race track in Louisville, Kentucky of The Kentucky Derby which will segue into the rollicking thematic programme.

Medley Bros. Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey will be raffled. Guests are encouraged to wear their finest Derby couture (and yes that does include your largest and most brazen of hats).
