Irish Baroque Orchestra - season launch

The Irish Baroque Orchestra have launched their new Dublin concert season.

The first concert is called "Ireland 1750" and will be held in Christ Church Cathedral on 18th September:

Our first concert of the season is “Ireland 1750”, offering an invitation to travel back in time to the music halls of 18th-century Ireland. Featuring 5 works that were performed in Dublin during the mid-1700s, including Purcell's King Arthur and Handel’s Il pastor fido, it's also a rare opportunity to hear music by German-born Johann Sigismund Kusser, who settled in Dublin when he became Chappel-Master of Trinity College.

Christ Church is a good choice of venue, a beautiful and atmospheric setting.

Ladies are requested to attend without skirt-hoops, and gentlemen without swords.
