Baroque Festival - The Judgement of Paris

2020 WAGGA WAGGA BAROQUE MUSIC FESTIVAL

FRIDAY FEBRUARY 21 TO SUNDAY FEBRUARY 23, 2020

Proudly presented by the Riverina Conservatorium of Music.

Enjoy a weekend of performances ranging from pre-baroque to contemporary musc - all with a strong connection to the baroque period.

The Baroque period refers to an era that started around 1600, and included composers like Bach, Vivaldi and Handel, who pioneered new styles like the concerto and the sonata. The Baroque period saw an explosion of new musical styles with the introduction of the concerto, the sonata and the opera.

With International and Australian musicians who share a passion for early music, this is a weekend of music not to be missed!
