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 29th January – Ashley Fripp (Piano)
We are very lucky to have Ashley returning to play for us at St Martin’s. He is an "astoundingly brilliant and masterly pianist, with a formidable intelligence."
He will start his concert with two of Schubert’s beautiful and very popular Impromptus, which will be followed and contrasted by the first two more expansive impromptus by Chopin, composed some 10 to 12 years later. The main work of the concert will be Chopin’s last piano Sonata No 3 in B minor. This is the author’s favourite Chopin Sonata, and is considered to be one of his most difficult compositions, both technically and musically.
