A QUARTET of graduate musicians are set to return to the region's stages with some new sounds and a new name.

Baroque the House, formerly known as Bizzaries, specialise in Baroque music played on original 17th Century instruments.

And next week they will be playing works by Vivaldi, Handle, Purcell and some of their lesser known peers at concerts in Pakefield, Lowestoft and Bungay.

Back in August 2006, at St Mary's Church in Blundeston, the quartet recorded a CD and performed an unpublished arrangement, 200 years old, of Requiem by Peter Lichtenthal. Radio Norfolk became involved with reporting that project and played part of their CD and did a live interview with the group over the airwaves.

Bizzaries at that time played two concerts at the Blundeston church on consecutive days, which played to capacity audiences on both occasions.

On Monday the group will play at the Seagull Theatre in Pakefield, on Tuesday they will play at St Margaret's Church in Lowestoft and on Wednesday they will be at the Fisher Theatre in Bungay.

The concerts start at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8 and £5 for concessions, with 50pc of the proceeds from the St Margaret's Church concert to be donated to the Palliative Care charity.
