It’s been a while, but the time has come for you to put your musical thinking caps on for a our traditional ‘name a concert’ feature.

We need a name for the following concert coming up in 2018. Think Handel, Telemann, organs and, possibly, feasts.

Handel: Overture to Alexander’s Feast
Telemann: Concerto for violas and strings in G major
Handel: Organ concerto Op. 7 No.1 in B flat
Telemann: Concerto for recorder, flute and strings in E minor
Handel: Overture to Saul
Telemann: Concerto for oboe d’amore, viola d’amore and flute in E major
Handel: Organ concerto Op. 4 No. 1 in G minor

Suggestions needed by Monday 18 December, and if we use your suggestion you can have a pair of free tickets to the concert. Post your ideas below as a comment.
