An Evening of Scottish Baroque Music

 presented by Duo Hesperi on Zoom

Mary-Jannet Leith (recorders) and Thomas Allery (harpsichord) formed this successful duo while studying on the Masters programme at the Royal College of Music.  They have been performing regularly online while planned live performances at festivals and other events have been unable to take place.

They have a particular interest in the Scottish Baroque repertoire and in exploring many fascinating links between Scotland, London and the continent in the eighteenth century through Baroque music.  They also have a story or two to tell about some of the colourful characters of the period!

We shall have some poetry, too, of course. Recitations by actor and Club member Alain English are always very popular, and we look forward to hearing which poems he has chosen to set our spines tingling.

The entertainment will start at 7:00 pm but you are welcome to join the meeting any time from 6:30, either to chat with other attendees or to allow time to overcome any problems you may have if you have not used Zoom before. Help will be available. After the performance the Zoom session will remain open for those wishing to chat or old or new friends.

Non-members wishing to attend may email secretary@bcol.org.uk for details of how to attend this first event of our new season.
