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.

Next concert

The monthly concerts are being talked about around the district …….The concerts are brilliant. Pam Russell, Tring resident and regular supporter of the Piano & More series.

 The Icknield Ensemble were spot on together under the eye of Leon Bosch and opened with a soft melody as an introduction for Helen Godbolt (cello soloist in Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a rococo theme).  Wow!  When she played it was like rich dark chocolate, silky smooth and yet reaching into your soul.  If you have ever enjoyed a sniff of a rich full red wine and felt the tingle up the back of your neck - this was Helen’s playing………… this magnificent Parish Church of ours not only has beauty in appearance but in the acoustics it lends such professional performances.  I can wholeheartedly recommend the concerts at St Peter and St Paul’s not only because of the quality of the musicians but the quality of the sound.  And it’s on our doorstep - how good is that?!  Mac Dodge in Comment magazine.
