Balmain Baroque Tony and Amanda 400.jpgBalmain Baroque celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2020. The band, based in Balmain, currently features:
  • Amanda Muir (soprano, baroque flute)
  • Lidia Bara (violin)
  • Tony Eyers (recorder)
  • Darsha Kumar (cello)
  • Donn Mendoza (harpsichord)

The program at Humph Hall will feature excerpts from the baroque operas of Handel and other instrumental pieces - just like a night out in 18th century London.

They have their own harpsichord, essentially the 6th member of the band.

Since the beginning, Balmain Baroque has had a strong community music focus. The group comprises professional players with a common passion for the baroque repertoire. They perform at baroque pitch and their wind instruments and harpsichord are based on their baroque counterparts. The 18th century saw a great outburst of high quality chamber pieces, Balmain Baroque has picked some of the best. Come and share with the band.
Visit the Balmain Baroque web site where you can listen to samples of their playing.
"Balmain Baroque is a quintet of accomplished artisans who each perform expertly and humbly, blending their individual musicianship to present an harmonious, yet astringent reflection of the opulence of the Baroque era.  With professionalism and humour, they entertain any audience and their vintage instruments are a delight." Annie Selman
