Come along and them play Brahms, Schubert and Beethoven and preview the restoration work at the same time.
They are at the forefront of the UK’s young ensembles. Most recently performing (and winning) at the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, they have performed in most of the major UK venues (including a live BBC Radio 3 broadcast from the Wigmore Hall) as well as giving concerts in Italy, Australia, Spain, Austria, Ireland, France, Switzerland, Germany and Holland. The programme in Portico will feature works by Schubert, Brahms and Beethoven.
