A PRIZE-WINNING group of musicians will perform at the next Weymouth Sunday Concert.

The Pelléas Ensemble will play the Weymouth Sunday Concert on Sunday January 14 at 3pm at Weymouth Bay Church.

Oliver Wass, harp, Henry Roberts, flute and Luba Tunnicliffe, viola, are a prize winning group of musicians who have established a reputation for performing recitals from memory, creating an immediate, intimate connection with the audience.

The Pelléas Ensemble was formed at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2011.

Playing with “verve and polish” (The Times),they recently won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Henderson Chamber Ensemble Award, and the 2017 Elias Fawcett Award for Outstanding Chamber Ensemble at the Royal Overseas League competition. In 2016 they won both the Grand Prize and the Audience Prize in the St Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition, and also a place on the prestigious Tillett Trust Young Artists’ Programme. In 2015 they won First Prize at the British Harp Chamber Music Competition.

Their repertoire spans the ages from Bach to the present day, and they are dedicated to performing new music, and have premiered three new works last year, with two further commissions planned for this year.

For the Weymouth concert, they will play Corelli’s Trio Sonata, Stephen Roberts’ Moroccan Sketches, also Bartók’s Suite Hongroise and Britten’s Lachrymae.
