Ben Davies to appear with Salisbury Baroque
SALISBURY’S period instrument ensemble Salisbury Baroque will be joined by bass Ben Davies for a concert on Sunday.
This tea-time concert, to be held at St Thomas’s Church, Salisbury, promises to be a delightful afternoon of music with a rare opportunity to hear a young singer widely praised and considered to be ‘one to watch’ as he continues to build an impressive career with performances around the UK and Europe.
Davies won the Oratorio Prize and the Henry Cummings Prize while studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
He has worked with Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the English Baroque Soloists, Glyndebourne Festival Opera and the Monteverdi Choir amongst others. He presents a programme spanning a range of dramatic emotions in true Baroque style, aimed at the heart as well as the ears.
On Sunday, he will be performing works by Bach, Handel and Zelenka.
Salisbury Baroque is also welcoming back Theresa Caudle as its guest director/leader. Caudle is well known as a player with The English Consort, The English Baroque Soloists and the Brandenburg Consort, and was a founder member of The Parley of Instruments.
The concert, called Lament, Rage, Love, will be held at St Thomas’s Church on Sunday, March 2 at 3.30pm.
