Sunday Tea Concerts brainchild of violinist

The Chapel-en-le-Frith Tea Concerts are the brainchild of by the Pleyel Ensemble’s violinist Sarah Ewins pictured above.

She lives at Combs and felt passionate about bringing the chamber music the ensemble loved to her locality.

The ensemble consists of a pool of experienced players based around the North-West and was set up in 2011 by cellist Heather Bills and her husband Harvey Davies who is the pianist.

Harvey, Sarah and Heather have performed in Chapel several times and they will be joined by violist Susie Mészáros from the Chilingirian Quartet for the next concert on October 30, at 3pm, at the Methodist Church in Market Street.

The programme is Beethoven  String Trio in C minor op 9 No 3; Martinu Madrigals and Dohnanyi Serenade for String Trio op 10.

As well as being the associate leader of the Hallé Orchestra, Sarah is an expert baker and her cakes will be available for afternoon tea during the interval.

Tickets are available on the door, from their website, or from Reading Matters on Market Street in Chapel. They cost £10 including the refreshments (free to under 16s).
