'The superb new concert hall at Kings Place – the first in London for 25 years – has opened an exciting new chapter for the London Chamber Music Society, which can trace its origins to Victorian music making in London in the 1870s, and the regular Sunday Concerts that developed at South Place and then the Conway Hall from 1929. The inheritance of the Sunday Concerts is special, and our Concert Series aims to continue that rich legacy – which has long been part of the musical life-blood of the capital – by bringing the very best classical chamber music to London audiences at affordable prices.'
