Soundbites

Wednesday Lunchtime Concerts

Feb Concerts Poster

Soundbites, as its name suggests, combines a selection of soups, rolls, sandwiches, cakes and hot drinks available from 12:00 with a short (35-45 mins), unticketed, admission free concert at 1:00 pm.

Due to the impact on our finances of the pandemic, and the healthy state of our Music Development Fund, proceeds will be used to support the work of the church for the next few months. Concert series dates normally match school term-times.

Our Spring Concert Series will start on 25th January and runs until 22nd March 2023.

Details of the first half of the season are given below.

Described as "suberb" and "exceptional, " the Ellis Ensemble is one of the UK's forefront chamber groups, dedicated to performing and commissioning works for piano and woodwind instruments. Having originally formed and enjoyed critical acclaim as a trio for clarinet, bassoon and piano in 2010, they soon discovered a wealth of music written for piano and woodwind chamber groups and decided to expand with more players, offering different combinations from duo up to quintet. The group has built a reputation through their virtuosity, expressive playing and original repertoire.
