Welcome to the website of Amersham Concert Club. We organise a season of chamber music concerts in Amersham every year through the winter between October and March.
Everyone is welcome at our concerts – just buy a ticket and come. We bring top professional musicians and exciting younger artists to play a wide range of music in a relaxed setting. Why not join us for one or more concerts this season?
Our 55th Season
We are delighted to bring a wide range of artists and music making to Amersham for our 55th season and our first concerts since the 29th of February 2020. We hope our audience (old friends and new) will be excited to return to live music in our local Amersham setting.
Covid arrangements It is very important to us that all our musicians and audience members should feel comfortable and safe at our concerts. Please DO NOT attend if you or anyone in your household displays Coronavirus symptoms or has a positive test result....more
Our first concert on the 2nd of October is with the pianist and friend Viv McLean. Viv has played for us on a number of occasions (the first time twenty years ago) and our return to music making will be a great celebration with Beethoven, Chopin and Gershwin planned for the concert.
On the 30th of October we bring the The Mithras Trio to Amersham. Praised for their ‘exquisite phrasing’, ‘full-blooded commitment’ and ‘bold, passionate colours’, the Mithras Trio is fast growing a reputation as one of the next generation’s most exciting piano trios. They are bringing a programme of Haydn, Faure and Dvorak piano trios, all much loved works.
Our final concert in 2021 is on the 27th of November and given by Alexei Watkins. Alexei is an exciting young horn player and will be recognising the centenary of the great British horn player Dennis Brain. The programme will reflect pieces which Dennis Brain was celebrated for and will also include the Poulenc Elegie written in his memory. Alexei is an outstanding young soloist and was awarded the Dennis Brain prize while at the Royal Academy of Music.
Our first concert in 2022 is on the 26th of February and is very different. We bring the The Vida Guitar Quartetwho will play a varied programme include music by Mendelssohn, Villa-Lobos and JS Bach. Vida perform an exciting brand of music which has been highly praised for its enthusiasm and dynamism.
We finish our season on the 26th of March with the The London Serenata wind ensemble. This highly accomplished group of musicians will play a “potpourri” of music. London Serenata bring their soloistic virtuosity and superb playing to the concert hall and this will be a special concert.
