There will be a fundraising afternoon concert at St Nicholas Church in Chiswick on Sunday 17 September.

At 3pm, Tomos Boyles will be returning to give a piano recital.

The programme includes Clara Schumann: Romances Op. 21, Maurice Ravel: ‘Noctuelles’, ‘Oiseaux Tristes’ and ‘Une barque sur l’ océan’ from Miroirs ’ and Frederic Chopin: Sonata No. 3 Op. 58.

Tomos Boyles is a young Welsh musician developing a career as a pianist. He has performed in numerous venues, including St Martin in the Fields, the Holywell Music Room in Oxford, the Wales Millennium Centre, Christ Church Cathedral, and the Aberystwyth Arts Centre.

He has enjoyed success in competitions, having recently been awarded the first prize at the Wales International Piano Festival in Caernarfon; this came with a scholarship to help fund future studies. Other top prizes include the Blue Ribband at the National Eisteddfod, and first place in the EPTA

Tomos graduated from Christ Church, Oxford University in 2022 with a first-class degree in music, having been the recipient of an academic scholarship during his studies. As a postgraduate at the Royal Academy of Music, he studies under pianist Rustem Hayroudinoff, having previously studied with Alison Bowring at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama’s junior department.

Tickets cost £10 on the door or £5 for students. You can stay afterwards for tea and cake for an additional £5. All payments by cash or card.

All profits to the St Nicholas Church Development Fund for restoration of the outside stonework of the Church.

St Nicholas Church is the earliest of the parish churches of Chiswick. Founded some 1,300 years ago, it was rebuilt in the 1880s, but the tower dates from 1425.

The purpose of the Friends of St Nicholas Church is the repair and maintenance of the building and churchyard, and its fixtures, fittings, and contents. The group raises funds from Friends’ subscriptions, and from events in the church and elsewhere. New members are always welcome. Click here for information on how to join.
