Festival Patrons


Michael Bochmann MBE - performing

'The Astaria Quartet is a very innovative and exciting group of musicians who have brought original programming ideas to all their concerts. Their delight in the music they play is wonderfully apparent and this transfers itself to the listeners in an infectious way. Their individual approach, style of delivery and polished playing is not to be missed. Introducing works from the English repertoire is one of their fortes and through them I have got to know a number of pieces that I had been quite unaware of. Their new festival is an opportunity for us to broaden our horizons in a very pleasurable way'.

Chris Jaeger MBE - Chief Executive Worcester Live
'The Astaria Quartet is exciting – the musicians are young, the repertoire wide and the adrenalin levels high. It is rare to find professional musicians with the enthusiasm and commitment of these four people and their concerts are exciting and hugely enjoyable occasions. It is genuinely a pleasure and an honour to be a patron for their festival Chamber Music @ Worcester'.
