Welcome

A very warm welcome to our 2021/2022 season at the Queen’s Hall in Hexham. It’s great to be able to stage concerts once more and bring performers and audiences together again after so long without live music. We’ve missed it so much.

Our opening concert – which, exceptionally, is being held in Hexham Abbey – brings the dynamic Consone Quartet to our town for the first time in October. Come and find out for yourself why this young ensemble is causing such a stir.

November sees the return of the Sacconi Quartet to the Queen’s Hall with the pianist, Emma Abbate, to play two of the greatest piano quintets in the repertoire, those by Elgar and Shostakovich. We have another returning artist in January 2022 – Zeynep Özsuca, who accompanied Jess Gillam two years ago, is joined by Sacha Rattle for an virtuosic evening of music for clarinet and piano.

The outstanding period instrument ensemble, Florilegium, bring chamber versions of three of Haydn’s London symphonies in February and are followed in March by a new young ensemble, the Mithras Trio, who will send you away into the night humming Schubert’s wonderful melodies.

Our season closes in April with an imaginative musical journey led by the French pianist, Patrick Hemmerlé.

Six concerts and all are true to our simply stated aim – great music played by great musicians. Join us!
