We're excited to announce that #NCMD2019 will take place on Saturday, 14th September, 2019. This year's events are centred around an "intergenerational" theme, with concerts for young people, older people, and everyone in between! Here are just a few of the events that you can look forward to:

  • An exciting cross-arts collaboration with Wolfpack, Barrowland Ballet's intergenerational company
  • Chamber music improvisation workshops for all ages with Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra
  • Performances in care homes across the country, with some involving young people
  • Concerts in Helensburgh and Moffat involving vocalists from the community
  • Plenty of chamber music performances in public spaces, such as the National Mining Museum and Glenfinnan Station Museum (both in collaboration with Live Music Now Scotland), Hospitalfield, and more!

We'll also be sending GAIA (a new duo comprised of violinist Katrina Lee and cellist Alice Allen) on a tour of Scotland, starting in Gretna and culminating in Thurso, performing a programme of music by women composers.

Stay tuned for more details over the coming weeks!


National Chamber Music Day 2018

National Chamber Music Day 2018 took place on Saturday the 15th of September. 

As 2018 is the Year of Young People, we created a programme of events packed full of family friendly chamber music performances as well as opportunities for young people to get involved in creating their own chamber music. 

We worked with 14 chamber music ensembles at 31 events including workshops, coaching sessions and family concerts across the length and breadth of Scotland. 

Look to the right-hand side tool bar to see a full list of events and don't miss our NCMD poster image designed by young artist Victoria Lopez. 

National Chamber Music Day was supported by the Hugh Fraser Foundation.
