Inspire local children to love and live music with tailored activities: we have just started a Kodály-based 3-5 year Primary School programme for 30-60 local children who currently receive no music education


Provide for talented students from the UK and elsewhere to learn from leading experts: we organise 44 masterclasses every year at the Festival for the participating students


Receive world quality artists to collaborate outside the concert circuit and explore new ideas: we invite internationally renowned musicians to perform and teach


Give audiences exceptional concerts in a beautiful environment: an audience of under 1000 come to Hellensmusic every year, and we want to keep it intimate!


Keeping Hellensmusic alive and working - it costs £55,000 a year - is only made possible through our combined efforts.

Allan Schiller and John Humphreys (piano duo)

These artists, as well as having distinguished solo careers, have also had a long-established and celebrated duo partnership.  Their mastery of the keyboard is undeniable and they bring with their technical prowess a level of artistry and depth of feeling which, so often, only increases with maturity.  This concert of beautiful music in the lovely setting of Hellens includes some of the most sublime music ever written for piano duo and is sure to delight.  Complimentary mince pies will be served.
