Founded in 2009 on the interstate highway that links Seattle and Bozeman, I-90 Collective’s repertoire extends from the dawn of the baroque to the works of Bach and Boccherini, and its fresh, improvisatory style blends the virtuosity of violins and cello with the intimacy of the lute.

On the heels of leading a period performance workshop in Bozeman, the ensemble presents “Yarns and Melodies,” a baroque concert of rustic, folksy yarns from England and sensuous, sophisticated melodies from France—featuring works by Couperin, Rebel, Leclair, Matteis and Locke.

“Yarns and Melodies” is presented by the Peggy Dicken Schwer Memorial Fund, the Carroll Toepffer Memorial Fund and the Arts Council of Big Sky.
