Each year we organise five concerts of high quality performances, mainly of chamber music, by both established and rising professional musicians. The concerts are an opportunity to hear current and future stars playing live, locally in a less formal atmosphere. Our 51st Season began in October.
Tickets for individual concerts of the 2017-18 season may be puchased directly via the Buy tickets links. Membership and season tickets can be purchased at any time from the Box Office.

Most years we try to arrange one or more coach trips to see an opera or concert. Door to door service from Amersham Community Centre Car Park to the venue, typically leaving around 5:00pm. A chance to see a high class production or symphony concert at reduced price through block booking.
We reserve the right to substitute artists and switch venues as required by circumstances outside our control.
