Tring Team Parish is delighted to host the Piano and More concert series, which takes place in the beautiful setting of its mediaeval church in the centre of Tring. The  concerts are part of the parish’s wider engagement with the town and its surrounding villages and members of the congregation give very active support.  The hour-long afternoon concerts, held on the second Sunday of each month, mostly feature the 1906 Bechstein grand piano which the church acquired in January 2017, and have involved many local musicians - pianists, singers, instrumentalists and conductors.   There is no entrance charge, but donations are invited, split equally between church expenses and the piano fund.

To donate online, click here;  various payment methods are possible, but it would be greatly appreciated if you could also email a note to the treasurer that the donation is for Piano & More, or give the reference ‘Piano & More’, if making a direct transfer from your bank.  Don’t forget to GiftAid your donation, if you can!

Next  concert

Sunday 19th May

3pm at Tring Parish Church

Our next concert, on Sunday 19th May, is performed by members of the Icknield Ensemble and features romantic music written for the rather rarely heard chamber-group combination of wind, strings and piano. The composers are the English Samuel Coleridge-Taylor and the German Franz Berwald. NB: to avoid a clash with a Tring Chamber Music concert, this takes place on the third (not second) Sunday of May.  For their full programme, click here.

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.

[The Piano and More series has] created a really tremendous forum with these concerts. Tring is much the richer for it. David Moore, conductor of Chiltern Sinfonietta.

Playing in the spiritual space of the church, with its beautiful acoustic and lovely piano, gave us back the feeling of what life really means, not only to us as musicians but also as human beings."  Kathron Sturrock, piano professor at the Royal Academy of Music, and regular performer at the series, writing in Comment magazine.
