News and Upcoming Concerts

During the course of 2018 we shall be marking the 350th birthday of Francois Couperin and the centenary of Debussy’s death.   It is also 100 years since the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) achieved their independence, and we shall celebrate this with a series of concerts featuring performers and composers from each of those countries.  Meanwhile, our ensemble-in-residence has started a new sequence of concerts exploring the flourishing of the Sinfonia and the Concerto as a Baroque musical form.
