As part of Arts Denman, the Denman Early Music committee has put together an 8 day festival of baroque music featuring a workshop for talented amateur singers and instrumentalists to be tutored by acclaimed specialists in performance of English baroque chamber works and a major work, possibly an oratorio or an opera. At the end of the week there will be a concert by participants. The Festival will also feature a community concert/dance, concerts by professional baroque musicians, lectures related to the music and an exhibition.
