Lampeter Music Club Concert with The Mavron Quartet

Lampeter Music Club’s first concert of the 2023/24 season welcomes The Mavron Quartet to perform in the Old Hall at the University.

The Mavron Quartet was formed in 2002 and since then it has been at the forefront of a revival of chamber music in Wales.

In 2004, the Quartet was appointed Junior Fellows in Chamber Music at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and in 2010 it became the first ever Ensemble in Residence at St David’s Hall (the National Concert Hall of Wales).

In January 2020 the Mavron Quartet were selected to represent the UK in British Council’s UK Russia Year of Music during which they travelled to St Petersburg to collaborate with outstanding Russian musicians exploring old and new music with a series of performances, master classes and composition workshops.

The Mavron Quartet is passionate about working within communities, making live music accessible to all. This regular charitable work includes representing the CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust in Wales since 2003, through which young people are introduced to chamber music, inspiring the growth of musical appreciation and keeping the genre alive. Additionally, the Quartet worked with Live Music Now Cymru to bring the joy of chamber music to disadvantaged communities.

Alongside founding member Christiana Mavron (violin), the Quartet comprises Rachael Briton (violin), Niamh Aston (viola) and Beatrice Newman (cello).

The programme for the evening will include pieces by Caroline Shaw (Entr’acte), Antonin Dvořák (String Quartet No. 12 in F major, Op. 96), Felix Mendelssohn (String Quartet No.6 Op.80), and Fredrik Sjölin (Shore).

Concert tickets £15 are available online, or at the door.

Full Club membership at £70 includes admission to all concerts for the season.
