All concerts take place at 1.00pm at St Mary’s Church, St Mary Street, Weymouth DT4 8PU
Our 2021/22 concert season will have 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.

The De Kooning Ensemble was founded in 2019 while all the members were studying at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Made up of violinist Jessica Meakin, violist Freya Hicks, cellist Evie Coplan and pianist Lewis Bell, the ensemble strives to make chamber music more prominent in young people’s lives and works with composers to push the boundaries of the chamber music repertoire. They are recent recipients of the Guildhall’s chamber music prize.
