Totnes Early Music Society offers live music from top musicians in the early music field. Our 2018/19 season starts at St Mary's Church in Totnes with a concert of medieval and renaissance songs and dances from The Emily Askew Band on 15th September, and ends with the top wind band Syrinx next April. In between, we have future star performers from the Royal College of Music, brilliant keybaord player Steven Devine and singer Kate Semmens showcasing music for fortepiano by Haydn and Mozart; a programme to anticipate Spring in midwinter from young recorder duo Flauti d-Echo with theorbo player Toby Carr; and a celebration of glorious music by Bach for violin and harpsichord from Duo Dorado.
