Amateur Strings performance afternoon

Amateur Strings performance afternoon

From Free



Jun 01 2024 14:00 - 16:00


Our last event before the autumn will be held at Gaspard Music Academy. The venue was set up to be a lesson and performance space by pianist Elia Stavrou. Elia is very keen to support groups like this one and I am grateful to him for his vision. 

The first hour (2-3 pm) is reserved for mini rehearsals with the performances starting at 3 pm.

To perform, please buy a ticket here. 

Audience tickets are also available at the door, space permitting.

I was inspired by amateur piano groups in London to set up a similar group for string players to build experience of performing. In these event, adult learners will share in the joy of music by playing for one another (and a few non-playing audience members) in a wholly supportive environment, have fun and derive the benefits of standing up and playing in front of others. String players of all standards, including beginners, are welcome. Bring your accompanist, play an unaccompanied work or come to perform as a preformed duo, trio etc. If you do not have an accompanist, feel free to contact me (Carol, attaching the piano part and expressly allowing me to pass on your contact number or email in case I am able to put you in touch with a pianist. 

Under 18s accompanied by a responsible adult are most welcome.
