We are thrilled to announce our 2016 concert series at the Melbourne Recital Centre. We will once again be part of the Local Heroes series, and we are presenting three programs around J.S Bach and the world around him, including works by his ancestors, his contemporaries and his sons. Now is your opportunity to pick up a subscription to all three of our Melbourne concerts. Please click here for information and bookings. Get in quick, because the first concert of the year is selling fast!
We are reallly excited to be part of the 2016 Peninsula Summer Music Festival in January where we will be presenting music from our brand new CD released last month on ABC Classics.
Delve into the world of 17th-century England, with music written for kings and nobles during the tumult of the Civil War, tunes which reverberated in town houses and taverns throughout the country.
Performing on instruments that the composers themselves would have known, Baroque trio Latitude 37 bring to life the music of the English Civil War. Featuring works by Jenkins, Dowland and Simpson plus renditions of popular 17th century English tunes such as Greensleeves and John Come Kiss me Now.
