Philadelphia Debut // Annenberg Center Debut

Scotland's Gramophone Award–winning baroque ensemble makes its Philadelphia debut. Acclaimed for their joyously vivid music-making, the Dunedin Consort and featured mezzo-soprano soloist Meg Bragle promise an inimitably fresh performance of “Bach at his most ravishing.” (The Independent) Under the direction of the preeminent Bach scholar John Butt, Dunedin Consort is recognized for its inquisitive approach, shining new light into some of the best-known pieces of the Baroque repertoire.
