ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
Eboracum Baroque are a group of young professional singers and instrumentalists at the start of their classical music careers. The group was formed in 2012 by Chris Parsons at the University of York and has performed all across the UK in prestigious venues and festivals including St John’s College Chapel, Cambridge and The Temple Church, London. Having made their London debut in 2013 with a well received performance of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas at the Grimeborn Opera Festival, Eboracum Baroque returned to the festival in August 2014 with a production of Handel’s Acis and Galatea. They enjoy working with 'Horrible Histories' author Terry Deary, including on a new production of Purcell's King Arthur, which premiered last year. They are also in demand for concerts further afield and recently returned from a tour to Estonia, which included a performance of Bach's Magnificat in Tallinn broadbast live on Estonian National Radio.
