In its 2020 three concert subscription series, the Melbourne Baroque Orchestra, brings the cream of Melbourne’s baroque musicians to the stage.
On Sunday August 9 (to be confirmed) at Church of All Nations, Carlton, leading baroque harpist Hannah Lane (recently returned from Europe) is joined by rising-star soprano Alexandra Toussaint-Jackson and the Melbourne Baroque Orchestra in a program featuring Handel’s beloved Concerto for Harp in its original setting, and music from Saul, Giulio Cesare, Esther and Rinaldo.
Then on Sunday November 29 (to be confirmed) at St John’s Southgate, a concert of String Concertos will feature Josephine Vains as soloist in C.P.E. Bach’s A Major cello concerto (this follows her acclaimed performance of the A Minor concerto in 2018), and Shane Lestideau and friends in the Telemann Four Violin Concerto.
Your donations are deeply appreciated. They help us pay our musicians what they deserve, and enable us to have ample rehearsal time in which to deepen our musical journey…
And at a time and venue to be decided (postponed from May) cellists Rosanne Hunt and Josephine Vains, with violinist Shane Lestideau, curate a seductive selection of baroque chamber works for our annual Music Gala.
