"A luminous moonlit view of evening"

In a glittering career to date, Paul has performed at the National Theatre, Kings College Cambridge and at world class venues around the world, from Buenos Aires to Paris.

Paul's programme for us on 21st January includes Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, Debussy's Clair de Lune and gems that may be new to you.

Paul has travelled extensively, performing worldwide. However, we are reasonably confident this will be the first time he's played in your lounge.

Tickets are £5 per household for Ongar Music Club members, £7.50 for non member households. The link will be free to watch for one month after the transmission date.

* One lucky Ticket holder will receive a stunning bouquet of flowers from Capital Flowers, Ongar.

For more information and to receive the payment and YouTube link please contact Ongar Music Club Chairman, Jane Webster at

Jane will also be able to point you in the direction of our technical expert if you need help gaining access to the Internet, YouTube or the concert.


It was with great regret that due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the guidance available from HM Government, the Committee of Ongar Music Club had to cancel last year’s Essex Young Musician of the Year Competition. However, we are delighted to announce the next Competition will be held in 2021. (The age limit will be raised to twenty-six for this one occasion, so that no entrants will miss the opportunity of entering the competition due to last year's cancellation). More details will be posted here in due course.
