Lunchtime Classical Concerts
Lunchtime Classical Music Concerts are held in St Martin’s Church Hall, at 12.15 pm, on the last Wednesday of the month (except, July, August and December).
There is a retiring collection which is used to defray the considerable expenses associated with these concerts - artistes fees, hall hire, publicity materials - and for the benefit of the Myosotis Trust. The concerts are arranged on a voluntary basis for the benefit of the community and receive no subsidy of any kind. Your generosity is much appreciated. Thank you.
The concerts are held in St Martin's Church Hall, adjacent to the church. Directions to the church, public transport and parking details can be found on our location page.
Future Concert Programmes
We aim to provide serious classical music concerts given by the best artists possible.
Wednesday 27th November - Masayuki Tayama
Masayuki Tayama, one of today’s most accomplished pianists, is much in demand across Europe and Japan. He regularly performs for us at St Martin’s Ruislip.
He has prepared for us a real Christmas chocolate box of famous popular classical pieces, starting with Rachmaninov’s Prelude in G minor, which all of you will recognise as soon as you hear it. This will be followed by Beethoven’s ‘Appassionata’, which is one of his greatest and passionate piano sonatas. His concert will conclude with three of Chopin’s most well known pieces - Waltz in C sharp minor, Nocturne in D flat major and his Scherzo no 2 in B flat minor.
If you are looking to have your spirits lifted in readiness for the festive season, as winter closes in, this concert is not to be missed.
Please note: there are no concerts in December.
