A warm welcome from our Artistic Director, Duncan Honeybourne
Weymouth Lunchtime Chamber Concerts continue to go from strength to strength. Some of our recent concerts have attracted record audiences, and have maintained our tradition of presenting some of the best young and more established artists in imaginative and colourful programmes. We also enjoy a ground-breaking collaboration with South Dorset’s new community radio station, KeeP106 FM.
Our programmes are varied and imaginative, mixing well-known works with lesser-known repertoire and composers, and all concerts take place in the attractive, welcoming surroundings of St Mary’s Church, Weymouth, where we are very fortunate to have use of an excellent Yamaha grand piano maintained by Weymouth Pianos.
Our series receives no funding. Our income, generated from ticket sales, covers all our costs associated with the concerts, including venue hire. We keep our ticket prices low and maintain a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Many regular concert-goers make their day out in Weymouth a feature of their month. Tickets can be booked in advance online and we also have facilities to accept contactless payments on the day of the concert.
We bring music of the highest professional quality to people in South Dorset, with an emphasis on young artists and the opportunity to present unusual works and neglected composers alongside well-known favourites.
Despite the challenges of coronavirus, and the suspension of concerts from March, we are delighted to resume our concerts from October and we are grateful to the staff at St Mary’s Church for their positive support and assistance.
With your support, we are now looking towards our 20th anniversary in 2022 – please help us to get there!
We look forward to seeing you at a concert.
Duncan Honeybourne, Founder & Artistic Director
