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.
