The quartet is formed of four close friends, who grew up playing folk and classical music together in youth orchestras and music schools across Scotland and in festivals across the UK, including their own festival Loch Shiel in the west highlands of Scotland. First Prizewinner at the 9th Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition in 2017, the Maxwell Quartet is now firmly regarded as one of Britain's finest string quartets.
Anna Hashimoto made her London concerto debut at the age of fifteen playing with the English Chamber Orchestra. She was the winner of International Clarinet Competitions in Kortrijk (Belgium) in 2010, in Carlino (Italy) in 2009, and in Tokyo in 2003.

What a joy has been the first half of the season and there is more great music to come.   There is already a lot of interest in Jess Gillam after her appearance in the Last Night of the Proms, so we look forward to needing more seats out for that concert.

Your season ticket also gives you access to concerts in Lanark and Peebles for half price - well worth the money.  A particular welcome to those who have joined for the first time, our numbers have risen well this year.

After Christmas, 17th January sees the Navarra String Quartet, Sunday afternoon, 10th February, is the saxophonist Jess Gillam, with pianist Zeynep OzsucaSarah Beth Briggs returns on 8th March with her wonderful piano mastery and we end the season on 25th March with the A4 Brass Quartet, winners of the Tunnell prize.

Subscription income from members is vital to the welfare of the Biggar Music Club, for without it, it would be difficult to make the necessary planning decisions and contract commitments for each season which usually have to be made a whole year in advance.

At present, the membership fee of £65 provides free entry to all the concerts for the whole season, only just over £8 per concert, even less than last year. This is amazingly good value when compared to what you would have to pay to enjoy live performances by the same artists or ensembles in Edinburgh or Glasgow (or even London's Wigmore Hall) and without the cost and inconvenience of having to get there...
