We would like to offer a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who continues to help make our concerts possible, particularly Bryan Fox, John Whibley and our volunteers. Please let us know if you would like to support us by volunteering.

We can’t wait to see you all again!

 We are friends and colleagues who draw on a wealth of experience gained through many years of music-making. Since our formation, we have given hundreds of concerts, and have an enormous and varied repertoire of chamber music.

Ignaz Pleyel

We take our name from the Classical composer Ignaz Pleyel (1757-1831), a brilliant musician and businessman, who, in addition to writing a large body of accessible chamber music, helped increase the popularity of this wonderful kind of music-making amongst amateurs and professionals as both music publisher and piano manufacturer in the early nineteenth century
