Dunedin Consort is sorry to announce that due to continuing Covid-19 restrictions it will not be able to present its 25th birthday concert from The Queen’s Hall as planned.
Instead, they will be recording a performance from Greyfriars Kirk, with the same performers and a small, socially distanced audience, on the same date. More details available directly from Dunedin Consort.
A 25th birthday calls for a rousing celebration, and we intend to mark it in suitable style.
As we kick off a year of birthday events, we invite you to join us for an all-Bach extravaganza, with concerts pairing two of his most powerful and richly scored cantatas with some of his finest instrumental music. This is music of depth and solemnity but also of salvation and celebration, movingly performed by a cast of Dunedin Consort regulars and friends.
Like all good birthdays, this one involves a great party. We hope you will join us before our Kelvingrove performance and afterwards at The Queen’s Hall for a slice of cake, a glass or two of bubbles and a late-night celebration.
