Leeds Baroque launch The Baroque Timpani Project

Leeds Baroque launch The Baroque Timpani Project


Join us for a free short lunchtime recital performance of Henry Purcell's _Sound the trumpet, beat the drum - _a Welcome Ode for King James II followed by an informal reception and an introduction to our ambitious Timpani Crowd Funding project.

Leeds Baroque is launching a crowd funding campaign to commission a set of Baroque timpani (drums), to add to our orchestra. We will also make them available to other period instrument groups. The instruments will be made by the legendary historical instrument makers, Henry Potter & Co.

We hope you will join us and be part of this exciting enterprise.

Much of our core repertoire requires period instrument timpani - instruments that are hard to find in our region. We hope to remedy this problem with the help and advice of Adrian Bending (principle timpanist for OAE and Professor of Timpani at the Royal College of Music).
