All concerts take place at 1.00pm at St Mary’s Church, St Mary Street, Weymouth DT4 8PU

Our 2021/22 concert season has a special focus on the piano – as a solo instrument and also its important role in chamber music. We look forward to presenting a wide range of performers, from solo pianists and other instrumentalists to chamber ensembles and a piano 4-hands duo.

Our concerts are proving very popular this season – please book in advance to avoid disappointment!

Pre-concert refreshments served in the Simeon Room from 12 noon until 12.45pm. Our lunches are also very popular and we therefore request that you book in advance if you would like lunch before the concert.

In his The Daily Telegraph review of their Schubert CD collection, Anthony Payne described ‘playing of fastidious poetry and elegance,’ in which they managed ‘to communicate their sense of personal enjoyment, bringing a professional attainment without inappropriate gloss.’
