Diary for 2022

Monthly Members Meetings are the core of our events calendar. We meet on the last Wednesday of the month. Typically, there's some simple sight-read ensemble, a break for coffee and then an opportunity for members to perform - solo, in duet, or any combination you like. All standards of player are welcome. But treat it as a performance and put in a bit of practice beforehand.

Other events in the calendar include recitals in our Celebrity Concert Series, often at Turner Sims, Southampton, but sometimes in collaboration with other venues and festivals. Occassional workshops and other events feature from time to time.

Our programme for 2022 is particularly full. This is our 50th birthday year and we mean to celebrate it in style. Our anniversay programm will be added to during the year but see what's available already (below) and if you would like a single-page summary to print and post on your noticeboard, fridge door or wherever, download this pdf.....
