Welcome to Wye Valley Music, bringing live classical chamber music to the lower Wye Valley. For over 50 years, we have brought high calibre musicians to venues in St Briavels, Monmouth and Chepstow.
During the latter months of lockdown, we worked with the Hay Music Trust and other music organisations to bring online music and live, zoom question and answer sessions with the musicians to you despite restrictions on live performances. Our core commitment, however, is to live music and we are very excited to be launching our 2021 summer programme in June.
Wye Valley Music In Schools: For the past two and a half years, we have conducted live music workshops in 8 local schools for over 1,000 children with the help of two grants from the Lark Trust and donations from our members. As soon as schools were able to allow us in, we were back-- in March this year pianist Clare Hammond worked with two schools and 120 pupils and will be in another four schools in May.
Wye Valley Music In Mind: We are about to launch a new community outreach programme in July: Wye Valley Music In Mind, which will bring music and music therapy to people living with dementia in both care homes and community settings.
