Brecon Baroque Festival 2016 - “Thou flower of cities all”

London’s Music 1550 - 1780

Box Office will open early June

This October we celebrate London’s music from Thomas Tallis to J. C. Bach. The Brecon Baroque ensemble will be joined by musicians and artists from across Europe including countertenor Robin Blaze, the singers of Trinity Baroque, chamber groups Ystradivarius and Trijo, and director Thomas Guthrie whose production of Purcell’s Fairy Queen will open the Festival (BBF’s Baroque commemoration of Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary).

The Baroque Tea Dance this year explores the world of Samuel Pepys, while our pop-up ‘Will’s Coffee House’ offers refreshments and live music through the weekend. Our supporting programme of talks and walks will keep you informed and active. This is our most ambitious festival and we hope you can join us!
