Members of the Cape Town Baroque Orchestra (CTBO) are joined by sopranos Lynelle Kenned and Hlengiwe Mkhwanazi in their award-winning concert of chamber works for instruments and voices by G.F. Handel (1685–1759). Part of the programme consists of vocal chamber duets, a genre that the young Handel was exposed to as a student in Rome. Many years later several of these duets served as inspiration for choruses in his well-known oratorio Messiah. Baroque oboist Ingo Müller will play a sonata for oboe and also join Lynelle Kenned in an Italian cantata. The CTBO’s Artistic Director, Erik Dippenaar, will perform Handel’s well-loved Harmonious Blacksmith variations. Performers: Lynelle Kenned and Hlengiwe Mkhwanazi (sopranos), Ingo Müller (baroque oboe), Cheryl de Havilland (baroque cello) and Erik Dippenaar (harpsichord).
Included in the ticket price is a delicious Afternoon Tea after the concert
