The pirates of Baroque…

  RED PRIEST

We are hoping for sun and a fair wind as we sail the high seas to make our first visit to the Dart Festival on 12 May to perform one of our favourite programmes ‘Pirates of the Baroque’ – a truly swashbuckling affair which will, we hope, show the great masters of the era in a colourful new light.   For me the visit will be a fleeting one as I’ll have to set sail again straight after the concert to try and reach Newcastle before breakfast – where I’ll be adjudicating in the BBC Young Musician of the Year finals.   Such is the life of the touring musician…

We have just returned from performing in Italy, in the opera house of a picturesque town near Venice, and before arriving in Dartmouth our schedule includes visits to Lakeside Arts Centre, Nottingham and Chatsworth in the Peak District, but we are sure that nothing will beat the wonderful atmosphere and welcome that will await us (plus a Devon Cream Tea or two!) when we land in Dartmouth on the 12th!

We be lookin’ fore t’ seein’ you soon
Cap’n Piers and his hearty shipmates,  Julia, Angela and David
