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 currently co-directed by Daniel Tong and fellow pianist Simon Crawford-Phillips.

A wonderful 2017 Summer Residency
The sun shone on Treowen Manor for our Summer Residency and it was a wonderful week for students, tutors and audience. With an informal concert from the Elias Quartet as well as the Tutors Concert, Open Day and Festival Finale it turned out to be quite a busy week! Thanks to all who come along to support our Residency musicians. Keep an eye on our Summer Residency page for details on how to apply for the 2018 Residency.
