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.
All being well, we will revert to our usual practice of a single concert of 1 hour from 1pm, with refreshments served in the Simeon Room from midday
