We are a 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
- Dina Ahmad: recorder
- Lidia Bara: violin
- Lucy-Rose Steggles: cello
- Donn Mendoza: harpsichord
We have our own harpsichord, essentially the 7th 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:
