“Piano lovers who come together to share their passion and love of all things Piano.”
London Piano Circle is a members‘ organisation of adult amateur pianists.
We are a group of friendly amateur piano enthusiasts who get together to play the piano either in members homes, concerts and masterclass/ workshops.
Managed by volunteers Gillian Warnell and Janice Shersby, LPC was originally founded in June 1994 by Andrew Cockburn and Elizabeth Gundrey.
LPC Membership is by payment of annual £30 fee. This enables you to participate in the events detailed in the website and newsletters.
All events are free from any other additional charge OR cost and typically include two annual workshops, four annual, seasonal concerts and monthly home groups.
Home groups are unique to “London Piano Circle” and offer a great opportunity to meet members and gain performing experience in an informal, friendly and supportive environment in members homes.
The LPC is run by volunteers on a not-for-profit basis, and all subscriptions and ticket sales go towards venue hire, tutor fees and associated running costs.
Former workshop tutors have included Charles Owen, Philip Fowke, Philip Smith and Roy Howat to name a few.
Newsletters are issued three times a year, in September, January, and May.
Participation: Events are open to ALL members, regardless of playing level or experience.
Masterclasses, opportunities for a performance places are popular and may have to be done on a rotation basis taking into account when you last played.
Concerts, all performance requests to play at concerts are granted, ensuring that all those who wish to perform get an opportunity. Virtuosity of the repertoire offered is not a factor at all, and duets are most welcome.
