Autumn Concerts 2019

The Autumn Concert series is part of our Open Chamber Music seminar, where over the course of three weeks 120 musicians come together to rehearse and explore the wide variety of repertoire that chamber music offers. The groups, made up of experienced and young musicians, decide during the week whether they are ready and would like to perform in the weekend concerts and therefore programmes are announced a couple of days prior to each weekend. Programmes will be updated here as soon as they are confirmed, or if you'd like to be informed by email as soon as they are announced, please sign up to our mailing list
