An award-winning group of musicians will be performing at Bury Parish Church on Friday.

The Aestus Quartet, which comprises vionists Leda Mileto and Chris Karwacinski, viola player Beth Willett and cello player Clara Hope Simpson, will be showcasing their talent in a lunchtime concert at 12.30pm.

Since its formation at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) in 2021, they have established themselves as a "dynamic ensemble that is recognized for their warmth and sensitive musical approach".

They are recipients of the Weil Prize for Chamber Music, participants of Chamber Studio UK’s inaugural Hans Keller Forum in 2022-2023, and finalists in the Christopher Rowland Ensemble of the Year Prize among others.
