Baroque 2000 will return for its 6th concert of the Season to the Church of the Mariannhill Monastery on November 4 at 11h30. This concert will mark the 10th anniversary of the Zukermann harpsichord that was built by Chris Brouckaert and his family, an instrument that has been used ever since by the ensemble in all its performances.

The acclaimed Cape Town virtuoso harpsichordist Erik Dippenaar will return to the stage and perform the famous concerto in D minor and the 3d movement of the Italian Concerto, both works by JS Bach.
