Be electrified by the sound of Bach live and up close!
Hear James Tibbles at the harpsichord bringing all the intricacy, delicacy, and beauty of J.S. Bach to life. Join us for an all Bach programme including Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 with Sally Tibbles (baroque flute), Concerto in D minor for harpsichord, Suite for strings in D major, and Arias for strings from the Passions.
