New Chamber Music

Chamber Music is—by its nature—flexible, intimate, and collaborative.

Creative Exchange Participant

What We Do

  • Commission and create new works and projects, working in collaboration with artists.
  • Work with Scottish-based musicians to support their creativity and well-being, and help them develop sustainable careers creating and performing chamber music.
  • Support and develop the network of local volunteer-run music organisations across Scotland to provide high quality live music, particularly to audiences in more rural areas.
  • Reach communities across Scotland to deliver creative experiences to those with limited access to the arts.
  • Creatively explore Scotland and its relationship with its landscape, people, and natural resources, including sustainability and helping to protect the wider environment.

Chamber Music Scotland is supported by Creative Scotland.

Traditional Artform
