ETB Ensemble – Baroque Tapas
Welcome you to this year's Sligo Baroque Festival, 2020. Uncertainty abounds these days - our lives unequivocally changed by the onset of the Covid pandemic. However, in light of this the value of the Sligo Baroque Festival has only been magnified. This year, our commitment to Irish artists has been fortified to meet the difficulties we musicians are experiencing. Our concert halls remain silent, the theatres empty, and in an already precarious position of no play no pay, the Covid measures are affecting not merely our livelihoods, but our cultural expression in its entirety.
Join us for a delightful showcase of baroque repertoire performed by music scholars at various stages of their artistic studies. This performance is a collaborative event with Sligo Baroque Orchestra, highlighting the ethos of outreach programming, open rehearsals, coaching and performance which has been a constant feature of the festival.
The opportunity to include this valuable performance platform has been made possible today through a grant from Mayo Sligo Leitrim Education and Training Board.
