Discover VDB in 2024

We invite you to discover a wonderful array of music with us this year. Coming up in March we take to the road with salt-crusted bard Mikelangelo, and welcome NikoTeini - two amazing Greek musicians who now call Istanbul home - for an extra special Lunchbox Concert!

For those who can't make it to a live performance (or want to re-live a show), we have a delectable range of digital broadcasts available in our "Watch & Listen" section.

I look forward to welcoming you to a performance soon.

Our next instrument

Extraordinary music requires extraordinary instruments. We are raising funds to commission a "Zampieri" harp from Dutch maker Rainer Thurau.

"This is not recreating an imagined past. It’s creating music now ... add performances of the highest calibre and an infectiously enthusiastic stage presence, and you have an ensemble that is a welcome addition to the baroque and beyond conversation."
