Devon Baroque and the new century happened at almost the same moment: : its first concert, under the direction of its founder, Margaret Faultless, being held on 7th January 2000 in the Foxhole Theatre, Dartington. An uncountable number of concerts later we celebrated the band’s twentieth anniversary at a concert at Dartington Hall on 16th February 2020, repeating many of the works in the first programme.
First concert of 2022:
Sunday 20th February, Dartington Hall, 3pm.
Devon Baroque’s strings will be performing a concert of music by Purcell, Corelli, Bach, Muffat, Vivaldi and Handel. This concert will be without an interval for your safety.
