Crossing the Pond

We’re packing our suitcases for a whistle-stop trip to the US – the second time this year that we have crossed the Atlantic. We’ll be giving just three performances this time around, but they are all in cities which we’ve never previously visited – Birmingham, AL, Garden Grove, CA, and Rochester, MN. It’s always exiting to…

Travelling in style

Here’s Andrew’s blog about the last few days of our tour. “After four nights in Indianapolis it was rather a shock to get on the road again.

Loot and Lent

Here’s Tom K’s blog on our stay in Indianapolis! “After some back to back concerts in the Northeast corridor and Dallas, we were certainly looking forward to a change of pace.

Christmas in Leipzig and Riga

After a very brief visit home, twelve weary travellers yet again set off at the crack of dawn last Thursday. Our spirits were kept high, however, by the prospect of our upcoming performances: the celebrated Leipzig Gewandhaus followed by our Latvian debut! Luckily, neither of these was a disappointment.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be taking our Christmas programme A Wondrous Mystery on tour on both sides of the Atlantic. We begin with a week in the US – our third visit…
