Our doors may be closed - but the show will go on...

This Saturday we'll be live streaming not one, but two sublime concerts as part of Early Music Day 2020. Head over to our Facebook page and listen to wonderful music from Steven Devine (Saturday 21 March at 1.00pm) who will be playing JS Bach 48 Preludes & Fugues Part 1 to celebrate Early Music Day and also the great composer's birthday, plus music from The Brabant Ensemble (Saturday 21 March at 6.00pm)

We'll be live streaming these concerts across the world from our base in York to mark this important day. Held every year on 21st March, the day is a celebration of more than a millennium of music and aims to increase awareness of music from the medieval, renaissance and baroque periods and share it with a wider audience. To listen just go to our facebook page for 1pm on Saturday.
