Frank Nowell, Artistic Director
Start Date: 2005
Frank Nowell founded the Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado in 2005, and the ensemble quickly garnered acclaim for its "artistic vision, authenticity, and devotion" under his leadership as Artistic Director and harpsichordist. Founding the orchestra fulfilled a long-held dream to expand the Denver arts scene to include a professional orchestra devoted to historically inspired performances of music from the 17th and 18th centuries. An active performer as a Baroque keyboard specialist and "early music entrepreneur," Mr. Nowell was previously co-founder of the early music group Diverse Passions and founder of the Denver Handel Festival. He is a frequent guest artist, collaborator, and soloist, including recent appearances with the Colorado Symphony (guest artist for "Art of the Baroque"), Up Close and Musical, Colorado Music Festival, Boulder Bach Festival, and St. Martin's Chamber Choir. As an organist he earned Associate certification (AAGO) from the American Guild of Organists and has held numerous church-music positions. Mr. Nowell takes joy in introducing people of all ages and backgrounds to Baroque music, and in particular working with young musicians to explore Baroque performance practices. He received the Master of Music degree in choral conducting and music history from the University of Colorado, and a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors from Princeton University.
