HIP Music Played On Baroque Instruments

Michael Marsolek talks with Kerry Krebill, Artistic Director of Musikanten Montana, about the group's Montana shows featuring "historically informed performances" (HIP) of Bach's Mass in B minor.

A 17-member orchestra plays period instruments like baroque oboe, natural horn. and other historically accurate instruments. They're accompanied by solo vocalists.  

The Montana Early Music Festival takes place in Bozeman on Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Butte on Friday at 7:30 p.m., Missoula on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Helena on Sunday at 4:00 p.m.
