Our new season in full ……..

Our first concert is on Sunday October 9th in Huntingdon Hall and is a collaboration with Worcester Concert Club. Tickets for the Masterclass at 12 midday and concert at 3pm are available from Huntingdon Hall Box Office (01905 611427 or on the day)

The remaining four concerts will all take place in the Angel Centre and tickets for these are available from Eventbritehttp://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/worcestershire-early-music-34176624357, or on the door. A special discount is available for those who buy a subscription ticket at £60 for all four concerts, individual tickets are £20 (entry is free to under 18’s and full time students)

Look out for our new book marks featuring the Green Parrot available for you to take and share with friends, who will hopefully flock with you to come and hear our wonderful concerts! The Green Parrot connection will be fully revealed in our second concert “Epitaph for a Green Lover” in November to be given by the Linarol Consort of Viols.

Our friends the Musical and Amicables are performing the concert in February, presenting a programme they played in Hereford as part of the Three Choirs Festival this year: “The Art of Fugue”  J.S.Bach’s great work will be interspersed with poetry.

Ensemble La Notte came to play for us in a lunch time concert a few years ago while they were students at the Birmingham Conservatoire, so it will be good to hear them in April as they make their way in the professional world. 

Our final concert next June brings us Chelys consort of viols who have played for us before and whose programme intertwines folk and early music.

New season soon to be announced in full.

Following our decision to run a season of concerts each year rather than a weekend festival, we have been busy behind the scenes drawing up the programme of events for 2022-2023.

Our first event is a collaboration with Worcester Concert Club on Sunday October 9th when Tabea Debus will give a midday Masterclass and 3pm concert in Huntingdon Hall, together with Elizabeth Kenny and Jonathan Rees. The Masterclass students will be from the Birmingham Conservatoire.

Tickets for the full season will be available soon when the programme details are finalised, but in the meantime tickets for this our first event can be bought from Worcester Live at Huntingdon Hall Box Office (01905 611427)

Coming to Worcester this weekend…

The International Guild of Town Pipers will be gathering for their biennial festival here in Worcester.

The guild consists of Waits bands from all parts of the country who perform music dating from mediaeval times, when each town had their own Waits band who performed and were paid for their municipal duties.

From 10.00am on Saturday there will be performances outdoors at the Guildhall, Greyfriars, and the Commandery, given by Waits bands from Bristol, Colchester, Doncaster, Gloucester, Leeds and the Stadspijpers of Hergtogenbosch.

On Sunday morning there will be a massed performance in Cathedral Plaza when all the bands will play together

AND IT’S ALL FREE, so come and join the mediaeval fun
