TNamed Quartet-in-Association with the Northern Lights Symphony Orchestra, the Villiers Quartet has created its own ground-breaking chamber music residency and concert series in collaboration with St. Andrew’s Church in the London borough of Hammersmith & Fulham. In March 2012 the VQ became a featured ensemble of the UK’s Making Music Concert Promoter’s Group after being selected from a pool of over 100 applicants.
The VQ regularly performs concerts exploring the relationship of chamber music with dance, art, film, literature, digital media and technology. Last year they collaborated with actor Richard Mulholland in a performance of Haydn’s The Seven Last Words of Christ; they launched the VQ New Works Competition, reaching a global audience with their online competition allowing internet audiences to vote for the winner; and they performed at the legendary London jazz venue Ronnie Scott’s as part of the Brit Jazz Fest.
