“Piano lovers who come together to share their passion and love of all things Piano.”
London Piano Circle is a members‘ organisation of amateur pianists.
We are a group of friendly amateur piano enthusiasts who get together to play the piano either in members’ homes, concerts or in 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. All events are free from any other additional charge OR cost and are typically include two annual workshops and 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 a friendly and supportive environment in a members home.
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, Graham Fitch, Frank Wibaut and Philip Smith to name a few.
Newsletters are issued three times a year, in September, December and May.
Participation: Events are open to ALL members, regardless of level or experience.
Opportunities for a performance place in masterclasses can be popular and occasionally performance opportunities may have to be done on a rotation basis taking into account when you last played. Every effort will be made to ensure All performance requests to play at concerts is granted, ensuring performance opportunities for those that wish to play. Virtuosity of the repertoire offered is not a factor at all and duets are most welcome.
