Autumn Tour

Open Chamber Music Tour 2019

Every year, following Open Chamber Music, a group of musicians specially invited by IMS's Artistic Director Steven Isserlis, take part in a national tour, bringing the work done at IMS to a wider audience. The musicians taking part each year have either had a long association with IMS Prussia Cove, or have come through the Masterclasses more recently, bringing together an ensemble of young and more experienced musicians.
