The following information has just been received from Godfried Croenen.
Over the Christmas period I met a young professional violinist who is trying to set up a baroque orchestra in Manchester to have regular concerts in the region. Their debut concert will be on Saturday 9 February. I will be going and I thought I’d share this with you.
Tickets are very reasonably prized and can be bought online: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/manchester-baroque-an-evening-of-baroque-concertos-tickets-53259098397?fbclid=IwAR0vMQbo6A5eugFeGSg2NMEmgmbS1HcAyETfVto2KR_jPqxj267w4_cRfHk
