Members of the Hammig String Quartet run a series of string quartet workshop days. These are ideal as an introduction for players with no experience of string chamber music who would like to try playing a quartet in a supportive environment, and also for those who already enjoy playing string quartets and would like to spend a day working in depth on a quartet, in a string orchestra setting.
The next workshop will be a special one, as all four members of the Hammig Quartet will be leading a study of a work which would not usually be tackled at these workshop days: Bartok’s String Quartet no. 1. This will be on Saturday 28th January 2023 at St Francis of Assisi Church Hall, Ravenswood Avenue, West Wickham, Kent, BR4 0PW. It promises to be a very exciting day!
Time: 10am – 4.30pm
Coaches: David Burton and the members of the Hammig Quartet
Work: Bartok String Quartet no. 1 op.7
Cost: £28.00 (payable at the door)
Bring a packed lunch, or get lunch in the local area.

On Saturday 4th March 2023, Jane Tyler will lead a workshop on Dvorak’s String Quartet no. 10 in E flat, op. 51. Same time and place, at the usual price of £18.
