and the Lockdown Passacaglia!
Throughout the year of lockdown, members of the University Baroque Ensemble have continued to rehearse both online and, more recently, in person. This remarkable achievement culminates in this gorgeous programme which focuses on music from the French courts with a smattering of English music and the brilliance of Vivaldi's writing for a quartet of violins. The concert ends with a Lockdown Passacaglia, devised by the student musicians.
Please note that there are a very limited number of tickets available for this concert due to the size of the ensemble.

These are in line with current Government advice for indoor performances, and we will keep them under constant review as the situation develops.
