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.
A wonderful performance by the superb Salome Quartet sold out in November. Next up in December is Hexad, singing a programme of unaccompanied Christmas Music, with traditional Medieval and Renaissance carols alongside a selection of 20th and 21st British century composers.

Wye Valley Music In Schools: WVMiS was launched in 2018 to provide local Primary Schools with one-off music programs from workshops to concerts and lectures by professional musicians already performing for Wye Valley Music and by performers specialising in introducing musical instruments to children. With the help of grants from the Lark Trust and donations from our members, we have conducted live music workshops in over 12 local schools for over 1,300 children.
Wye Valley Music In Mind: WVMiM launched in spring 2021 in response to the growing body of evidence pointing to the benefits of music to those living with dementia.Our pilot-scheme took place in August/September, in partnership with Severn View Care Home, Chepstow, using two students from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and a dementia-trained music therapist. We plan to revisit Severn View in the coming year and to open up the programme to day-care groups in Chepstow. Closer to home, from January 2022 we will be running a monthly Music Memory Café in St Briavels for all those in the area concerned about memory loss or living with a diagnosis of dementia, along with their family members and carers.
