Bach's orchestra in Leipzig, the Collegium, gave two types of concert - ordinaire and extraordinaire. The latter, after which our group is named, was very much along the lines of the forthcoming performance: namely a paid concert, often in a church, by a chamber orchestra performing concerti - and sometimes also cantatas - by Bach and his contemporaries. This group, whose inaugural concert took place in 2001, is formed from students and graduates of both music and medicine as a non-profit-making ensemble, with the aim of bringing alive some of the great works of the 18th century repertoire. We do hope you can join us for our concert on 9 July.
