About Red Dot Baroque

Inspired by the richness of Baroque music and close friendships, Red Dot Baroque (RDB) was formed by a group of Singaporean musicians dedicated to bringing out the essence and spirit of the Baroque on period instruments. Led by Alan Choo, rotating concertmaster of the Grammy award-winning Apollo’s Fire Baroque Orchestra, RDB has presented seven critically-acclaimed programmes in Singapore since 2018, and collaborated with guest soloists from The Netherlands for their first international tour to Malaysia in July 2019.

The COVID-19 pandemic led to the postponement of RDB’s USA concert tour in June 2020, which would have featured appearances at the Kennedy Center, the Indianapolis Early Music Festival, Apollo’s Fire and more. Nevertheless, the group stays busy in Singapore with the production of four high-quality music videos, the commission of A Barojak Suite from composer Phang Kok Jun, vodcasts with the Singapore International Festival of Arts, Reflections Arts Festival and MapleTree Arts in the City, and appearances on Channel NewsAsia, zbNOW and vOilah! 2020. In June 2021, RDB presented two digital programmes at the Boston Early Music Festival Fringe Concert Series and the Indianapolis Early Music Festival.
