Students from Birmingham Conservatoire lunchtime concert

On Friday 14th June the students from the Early Music department presented a programme of Early Music in Saint Martins in the Cornmarket. This was our third collaboration with the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire students who played a variety of instruments and pieces to an appreciative audience. We heard music for a Jacobean Masque played on a consort of recorders, a Pepusch Concerto played on Baroque flutes, recorders and Baroque bassoon and a trio sonata by Vivaldi played on recorder, bassoon and organ.

The audience included a class of children from a nearby primary school who enjoyed front row seats and were happy to be invited to talk to the artists after the concert.
