Baroque Music Night – Update – This evening (Wed) at St Marys Church

******Update – this delightful baroque musical group are playing this evening at St Marys Church in Acocks Green, 7.30pm.  Free Entry, donations at end of concert*********************
Local people were delighted by an evening of Baroque music at Acocks Green Library on 11th May.  Consort Pléon are a group of music graduates from Birmingham Conservatoire who play with authentic Baroque instruments. Sharon Reading-Firth plays Baroque Oboe, Maria Larsson & Rens Claerhoudt Baroque violins, Lucia Capellaro Baroque cello and Sara Willander accompanied all the musicans on harpsicord.

Consort Pléon perform as part of Swansong

The group peformed a selection of sonatas by the composers Handel and Corelli and completed the programme with Albiononi’s Concerto for Oboe and Strings in D Minor.

The musicians also  explained the difference between their Baroque instruments and their modern day versions, as well as the way in which the music would have been performed at the time.

The well-supported and much-appreciated musical evenings are part of the programme known as Swansong, organised by recently retired librarian Mike Byrne.

The next scheduled  Swansong Evening is Warley Male Voice Choir, back by popular demand, who will perform in the library on Wed 27th July, tickets are free and available from the library. A collection is made at the end of the evening.
