Aw, you've just missed:

Sunday FEBRUARY 26th 2023 at St Stephen's, Hampstead - a short programme of bubbly orchestral works. directed once again by the wonderful flautist and director of Florilegium, Ashley Solomon, in lively instrumental pieces by Handel (Concerto Grosso Op 3 No4), Telemann (Suite for 3 oboes and strings) and Hellendaal (Concerto Grosso op3 no 5). Just enough to banish those winter blues as the first flowers pop out!

Reviews from our last concert:

5/5 "Beautiful high class music and singing.Wonderful evening."

4/5 "Beautiful early music, beautifully performed by dedicated musicians of the genre."

5/5 "Greatly enjoyed hearing and seeing the Linden Baroque Orchestra again at St Stephens church being it has been four years since I last attended one of their concerts there. It seemed wonderfully personal being that we, the audience were so close to the musicians and the Leader/Director spoke to us sharing information about planning the concert etc. The theme of the concert, Pastoral Pleasures, was enhanced by the singing of Philippa Hyde. Thanks too for all the information in the program about the composers and the musicians.”

4/5 "A varied programme beautifully performed by the Linden Baroque orchestra and soprano Phillippa Hyde.”

Coming soon:

Saturday NOVEMBER 11th 2023, St James's Piccadilly with The Finchley Chamber Choir directed by David Lardi in a concert of, again, Vivaldi Gloria, Handel Dixit Dominus and other works to be announced.

This was our last concert in the summer

The first time we'd met since March 2020, for a 'play-day', happily directed by our founder, Maestro Paul Goodwin, on a rare break (between Israel and the US) in his busy international conducting schedule. We were also delighted to welcome back Julia Bishop to lead.

Some happy news

One of our fine cellists, Christine Draycott (you'll remember her beautiful continuo performances in the Bach Passions, including our last concert before lockdown), recently completed an historic aeronautical achievement, becoming the first civilian pilot to pass the exacting military flying instructors' course. Described as a "monumental task " it was only previously attempted by experienced military pilots. Having flown commercial airliners, she now instructs RAF pilots in the Grob training aircraft. Previously Christine played cello professionally with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. What a talented person! We wish her happy landings and a return to Linden when she is able.

Ideal companions for a good evening out perhaps?
