Events

The Avison Ensemble play almost exclusively period instruments and are thus best experienced live, in the smaller more intimate venues where we prefer to play. Below is a diary of our upcoming performances, so check back often as we regularly add new performances throughout the year. Alternatively, signup for our mailing list to be kept informed of new concerts and Avison Ensemble events.
