Piano & More

The Piano and More concert series was started in 2017 and takes place in the beautiful setting of Tring’s mediaeval Parish Church. The series centres around the 1906 Bechstein grand piano which the church acquired in January 2017, and has involved many local musicians  -  pianists, singers, instrumentalists and conductors.  A regular series of hour long Sunday afternoon concerts has been established, usually on the second Sunday of each month, and additional concerts have also taken place at other times.

Although the concerts are free there is always a retiring collection that goes to the upkeep of the piano and for church funds. If you would like to donate, please click on the button below, and enter Piano and More as reference. Thank you

Upcoming Concerts

We are pleased to announce that we will have our first concert  back in Tring Church on Sunday 13th September at 3pm. This will be streamed as well so those that don't want to venture out yet can enjoy it at home. The recording will stay here afterwards.

Please book your place on our News and Events page to allow space for everyone and for our records. More information about the concert can be found on the Piano and More website, the link is above.

Anna Le Hair will give a piano recital of music by various composers. The final concert in Robert Salter and Kathron Sturrock’s epic cycle of all the Beethoven sonatas for piano and violin, originally due for performance just after Easter will be performed in October, all being well.
