Wye Valley Music is the brand name of St Briavels Music Society which has been presenting intimate chamber music concerts for over forty years. A year or two ago we realised that our quality had attracted a much wider following, so we decided to broaden our scope and adopted "Wye Valley Music" as our brand name.
