The ensemble this year will perform a free concert at the launch of the Ardee Baroque Festival in Townley Hall, County Louth at 7.30pm on Friday, 26 July.

The programme for the 2019 concert series focuses on baroque dance music, in all its wondrous forms and guises and will include Corelli’s Concerto Grosso in F major, Handel’s Passacaille in G major and Ouverture ‘La Bizarre’ in G major by Georg Philipp Telemann.

Admission to the concert is free however, tickets must be reserved by emailing [email protected] in advance as space is limited.

This performance is funded by the Arts Council.
