We are a 5 piece (and sometimes 6 piece) baroque band, based in Balmain (where else), Sydney Australia.
We do about 3 shows a year.
The band was formed in 1995 by Amanda Muir and Tony Eyers. Our current lineup is:
- Amanda Muir: Soprano, baroque flute
- Tony Eyers: recorder
- Lidia Bara: violin
- Lucy-Rose Steggles: cello
- Donn Mendoza: harpsichord
And… joining us for our June/July 2017 concerts, the wonderful Dina Ahmad from London on recorder.
We have our own harpsichord, essentially the 6th member of the band. We play at baroque pitch, a semitone lower than modern pitch. The music just sounds better at the lower pitch. Plus it is easier on our singers…
We sound like this:
