The Academy of Ancient Music is one of the world’s great period-instrument bands.

To celebrate 40 years of performances that have touched hearts and inspired minds around the globe, Artistic Director Richard Egarr brings the AAM to Australia for a unique series of performances with soprano Sara Macliver.

The enchanting melodies of Handel and Purcell take centre stage, brought to life by the silvery beauty of Sara Macliver’s effortless voice and immaculate coloratura. London’s AAM are the leaders in this repertoire, exploring the golden age of English composition with passion, skill and joyous enthusiasm.

This is music performed as the composers expected: open-hearted, energised, triumphant or despairing. For one night only, through the magic of music, audiences will be swept back in time to the glories of the English Baroque. A concert to remember!
