BAROQUE 2000 (article first published : 2001-11-18)

Despite serious concerns that Baroque 2000 would not be able to host their next concert, news is that it will go ahead on November 25 at 11h15 at St Thomas’ Church in Musgrave Road.

“We have been experiencing financial constraints in the sponsorship and coverage of the projected shortfall in production costs for this last performance of the 2001 Series,” explains Baroque 2000 director Michel Schneuwly. “This concert has now been made possible thanks to a genuine and generous effort by all Baroque 2000 musicians and a generous donation from Mr Bob Ashton.”

The ensemble has a busy Christmas programme as it will appear in a number of concerts such as the 2001 Festival of Carols with the Drakensberg Boys' Choir at the school’s auditorium in Champagne Valley.

They also perform a concert for Friends of Music on December 20 at 19h45 at the Durban Jewish Club in Old Fort Road where they will play orchestral works and the famous Corelli Christmas Concerto (Concerto Grosso Op. 6 Nr. 8)

A previous concert of the group ended in a sour note when three of the musicians’ handbags were stolen in the church after the performance while they were having publicity shots taken.
