World Class Musicians Performing Live, Locally
Welcome to the website of Amersham Concert Club.  We organise a season of chamber music concerts at the Amersham Free Church, Woodside Rd, Amersham HP6 6AJ every year through the winter between October and March.   

The first concert of our next season will be on Saturday the 28th of September.

We will be announcing next season's concerts at the end of May and tickets will be available from the 1st of July.

Looking back at our latest concert season which finished in March

We can look back on a very successful season. We have had some outstanding musicians to perform for us, including some based in the Chilterns. We are fortunate that many professional musicians choose to live in the Amersham / Chesham area  and we are looking forward to building relationships with them. Thanks to all of them for the passion they have for sharing their music with audiences which makes  our concerts so special. We are pleased to see that people are returning to live music after the disruption of the pandemic. We have appreciated having such enthusiastic audiences at our concerts – thanks for turning out in bad weather and dark nights and for sharing your thoughts with us and with the musicians.

We started our season in style with Chiltern based Echor Music who brought a great double bill of Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet followed by Mendelssohn’s Octet with them.  This was really exciting music making, and we had  one our biggest ever audiences for the concert.  We then continued the season with more music for strings with Brother Tree Sound, also locally based, and the Dvorak “American” quartet was a highlight.  Watch out for some more special Dvorak in next season’s programme.

A piano recital every season is a bit of a tradition for us, and we were finally able to bring Cristian Sandrin to Amersham this time.  We heard some wonderful playing, with atmospheric Liszt, also the Chopin third piano sonata was a highlight for some of us.

We moved into a more impressionistic style of music for our fourth concert, with Fred Paixao and Milo Harper’s flute and harp recital.  This concert had a big audience and was well received.

We finished the season with a real step back in time to the London of the late 1600’s and early 1700’s. Ensemble Hesperi played exciting, fun and compelling music evoking this period of music making.  The period instruments - the recorder, violin, cello and harpsicord sounded special, as did the “Scotch” tunes.  It is a long time since a harpsicord featured in one of our concerts.  We were joined by a number of students from one of the local schools for this concert and it was a well-attended event which people really enjoyed.

We have a photo gallery from this season’s concerts  here, so do take a look.

Keep an eye out for next season’s programme, which we will announce in early summer. We have some exciting concerts coming up, and we are also planning an early evening, short “kick off” concert  for season ticket holders, club members and supporters. Something we haven’t done for a while and we are looking forward to.
