Frome Concerts Group: Saraband String Quartet
Sunday 24th September
Doors 2.15pm Concert 3pm
Saraband Early Music Ensemble specialise in music that would have been heard in the grand houses, sitting rooms, coffee houses, taverns and streets of the 17th and 18th centuries performing in venues that compliment the music architecturally as well as giving our audience a sense of informality and intimacy.
The lives of eighteenth century ladies are brought to life with music for and about actresses,
courtesans, milkmaids and the Blue Stocking Society.
