No concerts yet...

 It will be no surprise that Concerts Penzance has cancelled the events we had tentatively planned for the 2nd half of this season.  We look forward to presenting another full season of inspiring and uplifting concerts before too long - but how long is not predictable yet.

If you are not already on our email list, run jointly with MusicAbility CIC, then please email and we'll keep you informed of all our live music events when they take place.

Dear music loving friends

The Concerts Penzance 2019-20 season has now ended.

We would like to wish our audience all the very best for the coming difficult months, 
and although there will be no opportunities to hear music live for some time
we hope you may find it helpful and reassuring to listen to recorded music.

The 2020-21 season may be a bit late getting started in the autumn, 
but we look forward to bringing more excellent live music 
to the people of West Cornwall.

The dynamic and charismatic Heath Quartet first visited Concerts Penzance as young ‘rising stars’ but a decade later the quartet have earned a reputation as one of the most exciting British chamber ensembles today with regular performances at leading venues across Europe and North America.  
Recent performances have included many at the Wigmore Hall, a complete Beethoven Cycle at Kilkenny Festival, a John Tavener premiere at the BBC Proms, concerts at the Beethovenfest Bonn, Mecklenburgh-Vorpommern Festival, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Musée d’Orsay and Louvre Auditorium in Paris, Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Centre in New York as well as concerts in Chicago, Los Angeles and Toronto.
Their recording of Tippett’s string quartets won the 2016 Gramophone Chamber Disk of the Year. Later recordings of Tchaikovsky Quartets and the complete Quartets by Bartók have received outstanding reviews.
