Welcome to Warwick Piano Society
The society for anyone who loves Piano!
Warwick Piano Society, the place where we piano enthusiasts meet. If you enjoy listening to piano music, or play from an amateur to competitive level, come and meet like-minded individuals who share your excitement for all things piano. Whatever ability, genre or interest. Get involved!!
Piano Soc socials are the perfect place to network with like-minded pianists who share your interests! Our weekly socials usually take place in the evening after chill-outs, allowing members to unwind and socialise after playing. This year, we have planned restaurant trips, movie nights, a visit to the Birmingham Christmas Market, and more… stay tuned!
We hold several concerts each term in which members have the opportunity to perform to the public, usually in the Helen Martin Studio at Warwick Arts Centre. This year, we have our Chopin Concert in collaboration with Polish Society, a mentor-mentee concert, a general Piano Soc Showcase and more planned! Naturally other societies want in on our pool of wonderful pianists, so as other societies put on productions or concerts, this will present another opportunity to perform.
Held every three weeks on Thursday at 5:30 -7pm in the Ensemble Room, piano chill-outs are an opportunity to share your love of music and pieces you’ve been practicing with other members in the society! Feel free to join us regardless of your level of ability or preferred style—we welcome it all. And even if you are not a pianist, do come along and enjoy the music!
We have amazing talent at this society, if you’re looking to nurture someone else’s or improve yourself, take part in our voluntary mentoring scheme. We’ll have an opportunity to meet the mentees and mentors at the start of term before you commit to being teacher and student for the year.
Members can further take an active role in workshops and masterclasses given by instrumental tutors and visiting musicians. These are offered free of charge to all members, and have in the past included workshops on performance technique, sight-reading and Jazz improvisation.
We also coordinate trips to see professional recitals at venues such as Birmingham Symphony Hall, Warwick Arts Centre and in London. Check out our calendar to see where we plan to go, don’t miss out on these fantastic trips!
We will potentially be visiting an exciting destination this year for tour! Very much in the works. More details will be heading your way soon.
