LEEDS BAROQUE SPRING CONCERT A SELL-OUT!
Leeds Baroque, joined by the magnificent choral forces of the Leeds University School of Music project choir performed Mozart's Requiem (completed by Duncan Druce) to a capacity house on Sunday 12 March.
This special period instrument performance of the work, with a largely "classical" orchestra was given as part of their Spring concert as a tribute to Duncan Druce, their late friend and colleague.
