Concerts to warm up our chilly Autumn days

We have been busy playing concerts in London and surrounding areas….. A first for us was a concert at St. John’s Church, Watford, which took place on Sunday 24th November. The church is a lovely, warm space and we were honoured to be the first group to play on its newly-restored parquet floor. We played…

Anna and Chris' wedding

Harmoniemusik was invited to partake at the lovely wedding of our cellist Anna Tam and our violist Chris Brody in Whitstable in June 2019. We all had a great time – there was lots of music, including Anna playing the Nickelharpa…

Heatwave and Harmoniemusik in Berlin

Early June, and four of us were in Berlin for four concerts over four days as temperatures hit the 30s.

And on to the next concert…

The annual Conway Hall performance and party is done – thanks for coming if you were there, and sorry if you missed it! Paul played a huge number of notes (all the right ones, and all in the right order) in Louise Farrenc’s entertaining sextet for piano and wind; it was great to revisit Norman…

The group’s six core players will showcase a colourful range of musical styles in a delightfully varied programme of music from across the…
