Wonderful to be able to sit so close to the artists and enjoy the music in the company of like-minded friends

The concerts after a lunch in town make a very pleasant part of our calendar

Many concert-goers appreciate the breadth of the repertoire

The beaming smiles of the audience proved that they had heard music-making that was very special

These concerts are the highlight of my year

The most beautiful UK chamber music venue
