Musicking with several friends, presented by The Queen’s Closet – Saturday 4 March 2pm & 5pm, Sunday 5 March 11am & 2pm
Attending a performance of The Queen’s Closet period instrument ensemble in the Hannah Warehouse
The performances will be held in Unit 19 in the Hannah Warehouse building. The address of the Hannah Warehouse is 13 Leeds Street. Access is via the Hannah Courtyard, which is the open area between Eva Street and Leeds Street. The Hannah Warehouse building is the relatively small building with Pizza Pomodoro on the ground floor. There are two glass doors to the main entrance, with ‘Hannah Warehouse’ in large frosted letters on the doors.
There will be someone waiting either just inside or just outside the main doors to greet audience members. They will need to let you inside the building, and another person will escort you upstairs to Level 1 to Unit 19. You may be asked to walk up the stairs or to take the lift.
The Queen’s Closet is a group of musicians that perform baroque music.
The performers include an orchestra, who play on instruments copied from 17th century instruments, as well as singers. The venue is very small and the format will be informal chamber music performances.
Each of the four performances will be different. You can buy tickets to as many or as few individual concerts as you would like. All four concerts consist of chamber music from the 17th and 18th centuries.
These performances are part of NZ Fringe 2022.
