Baroquathon 2019

Our third Baroquathon took place on Monday 6th May and was another roaring success with some 40 participants; there were 12 ensembles, 6 solos, 6 duos, as well as group singing and recorder playing.

A variety of compositions from before 1850 were performed on viols, sackbut, recorders, flutes, French horn, oboe, saxophone, bassoon, violin, viola, accordion, concertina, guitar and wind synthesiser.

We collected over £200 which will be shared between the Elgar School and Worcestershire Early Music to help fund outreach projects offered by both organisations.

Worcestershire Early Music is grateful to the Elgar School of Music for its support, and we look forward to future collaborations, including Baroquathon 4 in 2020.
