Handel and Purcell in an orchard

What better place to experience Baroque music outdoors than in an orchard, and one that serves tea to boot. The enterprising Eboracum Baroque is returning to The Orchard Tea Garden in Grantchester for a series of performances in June 2021. 

Their short season opens on 24 June with an all-Purcell programme which features highlights from his semi-opera The Fairy Queen alongside his opera Dido and Aeneas. Purcell was also the theme of Eboracum Baroque's virtual concert Purcell and a Pint, and they will be doing a live version of it in Grantchester, there is also a programme of popular Baroque classics from Handel, Purcell and Vivaldi including operatic arias, concertos and instrumental suites, and the season finishes with a performance of Handel's pastoral Acis and Galatea.

The Orchard Tea Garden will be serving refreshments before the performances and during the interval. Audience members are invited to bring their own seating if they wish but the famous green deck chairs will also be out. 

Full details from the Eboracum Baroque website.
