Since its memorable debut concert, here at Turner Sims in the spring of 1997, Red Priest has become established as an essential part of today’s musical landscape, wowing audiences in all corners of the globe with it’s inventive, high-spirited, rule-breaking approach to music of the 17th and 18th centuries. Twenty years on the group returns to its favourite concert hall to celebrate its landmark birthday, with a selection of musical highlights from the past two decades, together with some amazing new musical creations. Expect music by Vivaldi, Bach and Handel as well as a few unsung baroque heroes, in an evening of baroque brilliance with a modern twist.
