Chamber Music Concerts

Hampden Quartet photoSt Mary Magdalene's is well known locally for the outstanding concerts held twice a year. The foundation of these concerts is the Hampden Quartet, a talented quartet of young musicians, two of whom, Alexandra and Charlotte Reid, grew up in the area and have maintained their strong links with their church. Many excellent musicians from the Royal Academy of Music have played at our Chamber Music Concerts.

Recent concerts have included Brahms' dramatic String Quartet in C Minor and Schubert's String Quartet in D minor, "Death and the Maiden".

Tickets sell out within hours, so keep an eye on our notices to see when the tickets are available for the next concert.
