Wye Valley Chamber Music was established in 2000 to bring world-class chamber music to beautiful and intimate venues up and down the Wye Valley. Having started as a chamber music retreat for young musicians at St Briavels Castle, the organisation has established itself as an important year-round cultural presence in the Wye Valley. The annual highlights are the January Festival and Summer Residency in July, which attract leading chamber musicians from the UK and Europe.
The festival is directed by co-founder Daniel Tong with fellow pianist Simon Crawford-Phillips.
