Bringing classical music of the highest quality to Hackney audiences

Welcome to the Sutton House Music Society

We are pleased to announce our exciting new season of concerts, taking place at the Old Church in Stoke Newington and at Sutton House  This season has something for everybody: Schubert and Beethoven for chamber music enthusiasts, both in their original form and with a Hungarian twist; a guitar recital by renowned guitarist Carlos Bonell; the great Bach Goldberg Variations; and a programme of Irish poetry and music.

Those of you who came to Carlos’ sell-out concert last year will remember his amazing resonance, sensitivity and range of sound. In his concert on October 15th, Carlos presents a wide selection of guitar music ranging from his best-selling no. 1 Beatles album to Bach's suite in E minor and Villa-Lobos' 5 preludes. Also on the programme two amazing 20th century pieces: Brouwer's Cuban Landscape with Bells and Sir John Tavener's Chant (his only work for solo guitar).

Carlos is at present on a world tour playing in Europe and the Americas. He says "The Old Church has one of the finest acoustics to hear classical guitar anywhere. It is just ideal!"

We look forward to seeing you there, and please do tell any guitar-playing friends.
