This is a meetup for amateur musicians looking to play classical chamber music in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
To-date we have run regular ‘rehearsing’ sessions - generally in west London with 1-3 groups playing depending on numbers. We discuss online in advance what we might play, but we might also play a piece that someone brings along on the afternoon, so although we have a range of levels in the group, a good level of sight-reading skills are pretty important.
The Meetup is also very much a forum for meeting other musicians, so please do post a message on here or in our Facebook group (where discussions are a bit easier!) to suggest your own meetup or form your own group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2180885818652244/ .
P.S. We're running a survey at the moment to gather feedback and ideas on our Meetup to help you get more out of our sessions.
We'd love to know what you think, whether you’ve been with us for a while or are completely new. New ideas we’re considering include accommodating less experienced players better, running performance sessions, and running regular social events. https://goo.gl/forms/rU8SkRWM3g4AHq4k2
N.B. This was added by a group member, so it's a side-thing to our normal meetings, but if anybody's interested, feel free to RSVP and I guess you can then contact Edd about it (or one of the group admins, if he's not contactable, depending on how he's set up in Meetup).
My Dad and I are looking for some high-level musicians to play with. I'm a pianist and my Dad is a violinist, and we're looking for a violist and a cellist to play piano quartets. Ideally this would be a regular meet up! We can host it at our place (South London)
