Early Encounters

Royal Northern Sinfonia is joined by distinguished guest artists and visiting ensembles Dunedin Consort, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Avison Ensemble on this musical journey, breathing fresh air into works written over 250 years ago.

From the choral splendour of the Messiah and Bach’s B minor Mass to the intimate expressions of Newcastle’s own Charles Avison, doors are opened on the sounds of a different era.
