Camerata Utricia was founded in 2023, by young professionals of historical performance practice. The Camerata is named in honor of the city of Utrecht, which brought its members together from all corners of the world. In 1611, the then gorvernor of Utrecht John Ogle decided to name his daughter in honor of the city: Utricia. She became a celebrated singer in her youth.

Camerata Utricia is an initiative to communicate baroque and early classical music in a way that feels fresh and exciting to us.

‘Camerata Utricia’ is a newly founded ensemble of young professionals, based in Utrecht. It explores the repertoire of the baroque and early classical period. Looking in depth to the historical material, we do not aim for authenticity. Rather, we face our preconceptions and seek to dismantle them- leading to an enthusiastically contemporary result.
