The Adderbury Ensemble brings together some of the UK’s top musicians to perform the world’s finest chamber music…

We’re back for LIVE! concerts in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire…

We’re excited to announce the return of live Adderbury Ensemble oncerts after an absence of some 18 months. You can view full details of all the live concerts we’ve lined up for our autumn 2021 season here

…and our eight “virtual” concerts are still available online! 

All the performances we have recorded since August 2020 during the Covid lockdowns are stiil available on the Oxford Coffee Concerts and Music in Adderbury YouTube channels. If you haven’t caught them yet, you can find links to them here. The costs involved in our virtual concerts project included venue hire during recording, musicians’ fees, video production and editing, and communications expenses.
