Next baroque concert to take place on November 29 at Mariannhill.

Baroque 2000's next concert is on November 29 at the Church of the Monastery, Mariannhill – at an earlier time of 11h00 (as opposed to the normal afternoon time)

For the first time since the ensemble was formed, the programme features a Baroque oboe, played by Maggie Deppe in Telemann's Sonata for oboe, cello and harpsichord. This work will be played at the original Baroque pitch. The orchestra will perform Bach's Cantata no 51, Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen, with virtuoso soprano soloist Bronwen Forbay, and trumpeter Michel Schneuwly. The other work is Vivaldi's Concerto for two violins RV523 in which the soloists will be Ralitza Cherneva and Annien van der Linde.

The peaceful Monastery Gardens will be open for tea, coffee and scones both before (from 10h00) and after this intriguing concert, and there is ample safe parking. Tickets R80 at the door, enquiries to Michel at or to 031 312 5539.
