A Great Noyse is Victoria’s only Renaissance wind ensemble. Performing on authentic reproductions of instruments used over 400 years ago, the five-person ensemble creates a unique sound that you simply won’t hear anywhere else on the Island.
From elegant masques in the stately gardens of royalty to lively dances on the village green, the haut, or loud, consort was designed for outdoor occasions. Join us for this concert of lively and tuneful music, in the setting of one of the finest private gardens in Victoria.
