Our second day of HISS at Home includes the next instalment of Anne Marie and Amélie's series of 'Introduction to Baroque Strings' and a live recorder loop Tarantella by our expert looper in residence, Becki.
Tonight we have our first live event of the week at 7pm on Zoom with Anne Marie and Amélie as they take part in a Q&A about historical strings.
We are also showcasing Jake's "Lockdown Lute" series, which was produced by our supporters, the Early Music Shop.
