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.
