Its members and alumni populate numerous professional ensembles throughout America. With the support of scholarships from the Colburn Foundation and the USC-Huntington Early Modern Studies Institute, the Thornton Baroque Sinfonia has won the Early Music America Collegium to perform in the Berkeley and Boston Early Music Festivals.
