The Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado opens its season this week with a concert that features chamber music arrangements of J.S. Bach and Antonio Vivaldi.

The performance includes a chamber music arrangement of music from the “Goldberg” Variations, Bach’s keyboard masterpiece. Concerts are set for Thursday in North Denver, Friday in Grand Junction and Sunday in South Denver.

The orchestra’s 2016-17 season includes a February collaboration with the contemporary dance troupe Wonderbound, featuring music by Vivaldi and Giuseppe Tartini.

And in May, the ensemble will perform a program called “Mozart Among Friends,” featuring music interspersed with readings of Mozart’s letter.
