St. James Baroque Players (Instrumental Ensemble)

Founded: 1984 - London, England

St. James Baroque Players were founded in 1984 by Ivor Bolton to accompany his performances of Bach Cantatas at Sunday services at St James Church in London. The St. James's Baroque Players also performed in some of the concerts that formed part of the 1984 Piccadilly Festival, a wide-ranging arts events organised at the church; the following year the concerts were grouped under the title of the Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music with Ivor Bolton as Musical Director. Since then they have established themselves, under his direction, as one of the most accomplished orchestras in their field.
