A Royal Engagement
St Mary’s Church, Totnes

Convivio celebrate the anniversary of Bach’s appointment as Kappellmeister to Prince Leopold, exactly 300 years ago. From the court of Frederick the Great in Dresden to that of George I in London, Convivio explores music from some of the most renowned baroque composers working at the royal courts across Europe, alongside lesser known works from composers including the Bach family, Handel, Hasse and Telemann.

Formed in 2016, Convivio features students and alumni from the Royal College of Music, including former KEVICC student Katie Cowling. The ensemble has performed at venues across London, including St George’s Hanover Square and Handel House, and as part of the Guildford Music Festival 2017.

ENSEMBLE MOLIERE: Telemann and his Friends in Paris
St Mary’s Church, Totnes
