The Otley Baroque concert series was launched in 2018 by Asuka Sumi, an international baroque violinist who lives the local for 5 years.
The aim is to bring high-quality early music performance to the historic and vibrant little town of Otley, at the same time to support charities such as the St George’s Crypt in Leeds by raising the donation and people’s awareness.
The Otley Baroque hosts seasonal Sunday afternoon concerts in local Churches and Cafe Baroque series at Cafe Casa Vitae.
Last seasons, the series raised more than £1000 for donation and also received Leeds Inspired grants from Leeds City Council for its most recent event.
Visit here for past concerts gallery.
Due to the ongoing changes in the public health situation across UK, we decided to postpone the events on 9th and 10th May.
We are working on finding the new dates in near future and it will be announced here and other social medias as soon as possible.
