Berkeleys University Baroque Ensemble (UBE) was founded in 2003 as a successor to the Collegium musicum. It is, as far as weknow, the only student group in the world that performs not just on copies of original instruments but on original eighteenth-century instruments. These include some fine antique violins from the A. Salz Collection, donated to the Music Department over forty years ago. The UBE is currently open to players of violin, viola, cello, bass, flute, keyboard, and guitar (or lute). For students who currently play the modern versions of these instruments, coaching is available to help learn the original baroque instruments.
