The popular Baroque 2000 has announced the first performance of the 2002 Concert Series.

The season programme will include Vivaldiís Concerto for 4 violins, Concerto for flute and bassoon and various concerti of different instrument combinations. Other exciting works are Telemannís Concerto for 3 trumpets and 2 oboes; string works by Albinoni and Dido and Aeneas a short opera by Purcell with the amazing "Ars Nova" Chamber Choir from Pretoria.
