Steyning Music Society welcomes one of the UK's most exciting, prize-winning chamber ensembles, the Villiers String Quartet, on the afternoon of Sunday, November 27.

Spokesman Gary Prior said: “Hailed as one of the most charismatic and adventurous quartets of the British chamber music scene, the Villiers Quartet have developed an international reputation as exceptional interpreters of English composers including Elgar, Britten and Delius.

“Formed in 2011, the Villiers Quartet have performed live on BBC Radio 3 as part of the Leamington International String Quartet Series and performed at numerous festivals and halls. The quartet has been invited to present masterclasses at Dartmouth College, Syracuse University, Sherborne School, Nottingham High School, and the University of Nottingham. Their internationally-acclaimed VQ New Works Competition encourages audiences to interact with contemporary music performance online and supports the creation of new works for string quartet.”

For Steyning, the Quartet will play Tchaikovsky's Quartet No. 1 in D Major, Op. 11, the Quartet in C minor, Op. 51 by Brahms, and 'Noche Del Amor Insomne' by Jose Gonzalez Granero.

The afternoon concert is at the Steyning Centre and begins at 3pm. Tickets for non-members cost £15, members pay £10 and students are £2, available in advance from the Steyning Bookshop or on 01903 812662. More information can be found at www.steyningmusicsociety.org.
