Queer Baroque – Joe Levy, 7:30pm

Queer Baroque - Joe Levy, 7:30pm

In celebration of Pride month 2023, countertenor Joe Levy explores the relationship between Classical music and the LGBTQIA+ community with ‘Queer Baroque’. Accompanied on the piano by Konstantinos Terzakis, Joe is performing two concerts at St Nicholas’ Priory, Exeter’s oldest building, on 9th and 23d June 2023 at 7.30pm.

With a focus on the Baroque period, the concerts will reveal not only queer composers of the time (Handel, Lully), but also how music from other artists have become part of LGBTQIA+ history and culture. Baroque culture can often challenge our understanding of historical attitudes towards gender and sexuality, whether that be through fashion or through the personal histories of people at the time. ‘Queer Baroque’ will attempt to illuminate this, providing valuable insight on how we can celebrate queer artists and their contribution to society today.

We’ll run a bar and look forward to celebrating together. Thank you to the Co-op for sponsoring our event!
