About the Sunday Concerts
Founded in the 1880s, our chamber music concert series is the longest-running of its kind in Europe. Conway Hall was purpose-built in 1929 to host concerts and lectures, and they have continued here until the present day. The ethos of “affordable classical music for all” still remains.
** This performance will be live-streamed online using YouTube Live. A link to join the concert will be sent to ticketholders on the day of the event. **
