Soloist Biography: Jeremy Rhizor is one of the world’s foremost interpreters of the Baroque oratorio repertoire and is the driving force for its revival in the United States. As the founder and artistic director of the Academy of Sacred Drama, Rhizor built an organization inspired by Baroque academies into an institution that champions the performance and research of sacred drama. He is the publisher of the Academy’s Sacred Drama Journal, an open-license general readership magazine about the history, themes, and music of sacred drama. Noted for playing “virtuosically but with fluid grace” by The New York Times, Rhizor will be the guest concertmaster of the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra for a Naxos Records recording in the 2021–2022 season.
