Formed in 1964 by staff of the Harris College, we have promoted classical chamber music concerts at midday continuously for more than half a century. The College has now morphed into UCLAN, but we still retain the original name of Preston's Victorian benefactor Edmund Harris. Until 2002 we met in various college/university premises, including St. Peter's Arts Centre and the Vernon Gallery. Since 2003 we have been using the newly revamped Preston Minster, where we enjoy the use of a fine Bosendorfer Imperial Grand Piano.
