St Denys’ Church, off Walmgate 4th November from 12-1pm
Bootham Baroque present
Love or Liberty?
Can love and liberty exist in harmony, or do we always have to choose? Join Bootham Baroque to explore this essential question through gorgeous but little-known soprano duets by Bernier and Bononcini. We’ll take a breather from the emotional tension with a beautiful trio sonata by Boismortier for flute, violin and cello.
Sarah Sketchley—Soprano, Baroque flute
Felicia McCormick—Baroque Violin
William Hunt—Baroque cello
Tickets on the door: All adult tickets £5 / Under 16s free
