About the Artist/Exhibition

The Sunday Serenades are a programme of musical events held every Sunday throughout the summer at 2pm,  arranged by Gethyn Jones for the Williamson and Priory Friends and are very popular with Friends and visitors to the gallery.

We are proud to welcome another array of wonderful performers to Gallery Four at the Williamson for the Sunday Serenades Programme 2017.


August 13th: Modern jazz from the Olly Chalk Trio, graduates from Birmingham Conservatoire; Olly Chalk, hailed as one of the most gifted piano players of his generation, is here with Serenade regulars Sam Ingvorsen (bass) and Gwilym Jones (drums).

August 20th: Popular local soprano Heather Heighway (soprano) accompanied by pianist Tim Kennedy, joined by tenor, Joseph Buckmaster, and clarinettist David Cantillon, for a programme of German music including Schubert’s Shepherd on a rock, Mozart arias and songs by Beethoven, Brahms, Lehar and Wolf, with Johan Strauss II.

August 27th: An Alpine Adventure from Soloists from Orchestra dell’Arte play songs and jolly tunes with an alpine theme to round off the summer programme.

All concerts begin at 2pm, café open before and after the concert.

Free admission but donations are warmly welcomed. Please note that the concerts are now costing more to run than is received. In previous years, the costs have equalled the donations, this sadly is not the case this year and with increasing demands on the charity – the continuing commitment to supporting annual programmes and new projects, it may be difficult to keep the concerts entirely free to all in the future.
