A message from Chris Windass

Well this an opportunity for me to say hello to you all. My name is Chris Windass and I have been organising Coffee Concerts in Oxford on a Sunday morning for nearly 25 years. I can’t quite believe it! I know that some of you have been on that journey with me for as long as I have….I absolutely love the Coffee Concerts and I can’t imagine Sunday mornings without them.

One of my favourite things about this particular time of year, is the Summer Series on the lovely Summer evenings that I organise for The Adderbury Ensemble. This year we started are based at The Holywell Music Rooms instead of The Sheldonian while they refurbish the building. On Friday (tomorrow) we are playing the first part of Vivaldi’s Seasons which we complete on Tuesday 27th July coinciding  with the release of the recording – you can purchase this on the evening or on the Shop page of this website using PayPal to pay securely.

Please add your comments below…I’d love to hear of any of your favourite concerts that you may have been to over the years.

    Just a note to let you know how much my partner and I enjoy fairly regular visits to the coffee concerts. We were particularly impressed when listening to the young down to earth guitarist Morgan Szymanski on 18th April. What a refreshing artist and one who knows how important it is for a musician to communicate orally as well as through the music itself. Would love to see and hear him again. Keep up the good work. John Coakes and Elaine Dawson.

  • Hello Chris,

    I love the idea of Sunday morning concerts. Can I tempt you to put on a Indian classical music recital as part of your concert series?

    I’m a pianist recently moved to the area and am looking to accompany or play chamber music. I have performed in Suffolk, as a solo pianist and as accompanist and duettist. I also teach and compose. I wonder if you might be able to help.
