We are proud to welcome our newly-named Quartet in Association to perform at our residency, St. Saviours Church, Pimlico. Members of the quartet have given concerts across the UK, Europe, China, Japan, Indonesia, Canada, and in 30 states across the USA, including a quartet residency at Syracuse University. In addition to performing the classical repertoire of Haydn, Beethoven, and Mozart, the ensemble also promotes the music of contemporary and emerging composers. www.villiersquartet.com

and the other 'quartetists' for wonderful, transporting music. It seemed
to me to be so right that that wonderful music of the 18th century should
be performed in a church built a century or more later and being renovated
another century and a half further on. And to have a violin of 1740 as one
of the instruments being played, brought past, present and future (of St
Andrew's and the Villiers Quartet) together
I thought that there was a good audience for the first of the concerts and
that we can build on that so that the next concert becomes a 'must attend'

We are pleased to announce that we surpassed our goal for our IndieGoGo Campaign, raising $3,575 to go towards creating our new quartet residency and chamber music series at St. Andrew's Church, Hammersmtih & Fulham, London.
We are grateful to everyone who supported us, and we have been galvanized by the idea that, with a little help from your friends, ideas can be turned into reality.
Thanks for your contributions, support, and encouragement, everyone! We have been overwhelmed by the response, and we are happy you have taken the leap to begin this journey with us...let's see where the road takes us!
