UPCOMING EVENTS

COVID-19 UPDATE

Due to the government restrictions surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, we - like all concert-musicians - have had to postpone and cancel any concerts we've had lined up for the next few weeks. We sincerely hope everyone remains positive and healthy over the troubling times ahead, and we will provide further updates about our concerts when we know more. Please reach out to us if any of you or your loved ones need help, some playing to listen to, or even just a chat. 

Stay safe and wishing everyone good health,

Due to COVID-19 and the Government's safety measures, Holy Sepulchre is closed and we are unsure when we will be able to perform there again. We hope some measures may be relaxed by June, and so we have kept recitals from there in the diary.
