Proprietor Café Mozart

A period music chamber ensemble, renowned for its innovative programmes, based on serious research but presented with an informality designed to entertain our audiences.  Café Mozart came into being in 1985 with the aim of performing late 18th century music – the era of Haydn and Mozart – on period instruments. As “Proprietor” the group’s initiator, Derek McCulloch, Castle Alumnus, decided to focus on largely unexplored repertoires, often of the domestic music-making of that time, coupled to the chamber music and songs relating to ‘Haydn in England’. These have become the core elements of most of our programmes, performed to music societies across UK, on radio and television at home and abroad, and in our recording projects.

We are delighted to welcome Derek McCulloch back to Durham, to perform again in the music department concert room where he did much of his first solo singing as a student.
