Bach at The Calyx - The Marais Project

Bach at the Calyx is a series of four free and interactive Sunday afternoon classical music concerts. The perfect pairing of J.S. Bach and other masterworks in the verdant surrounds of the Royal Botanic Gardens. Join us every second Sunday in May, June, July, and August to explore a world of musical treasures and floral blooms starring artists from Australia's leading classical ensembles.
These matinee concerts are family friendly and have a 40 minute running time.

The Marais Project is a celebration of music for the viola da gamba inspired by Marin Marais, the great French virtuoso viola da gamba performer and composer.

Formed by Jennifer Eriksson in 2000, in 2019 the ensemble celebrated its first twenty years with the release of our seventh CD, “The Garden Party.” The ensemble’s original aim was to perform the complete works of Marais – a monumental task which is more than 85% complete. However, over the years we have extended our repertoire beyond the French baroque to include folk music, mediaeval and renaissance repertoire as well as commissioning and recording new Australian works.

The Marais Project is the 2019-20 Ensemble in Residence at Fine Music 102.5.

Presented by Jennifer Eriksson (viola da gamba), Tommie Anderson (lute) & Susie Bishop (violin/vocals).
