Violinist Theresa Caudle, her brother the cellist Mark Caudle and harpsichordist Robin Bigwood once again lead this exciting and thoroughly joyful course. The theme for this year’s course is “The Concerto Grosso in England” and works will include concertos by Avison, Geminiani and Castrucci. We are seeking an orchestra of baroque string players with period instruments (or modern instruments with baroque bows and gut strings) at A = 415 Hz and those who wish will have opportunities to play solo parts. We’ll also need at least one harpsichordist and the continuo group may include plucked strings. Players must be of a reasonably advanced standard, confident sight-readers, and willing to rehearse in some detail.
