The Tom Bachtell/Music of the Baroque Portraits

As part of our 50th anniversary celebration, Music of the Baroque commissioned New Yorker caricaturist Tom Bachtell to create portraits of five major composers whose music we're performing in our anniversary season: Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, and Vivaldi. A poster of all five portraits plus signed individual prints are on sale now and will also be available for purchase during the live broadcast.
