National Chamber Music Day

Scotland’s finest chamber musicians will return to unusual venues across the country on Saturday, September 14 for National Chamber Music Day.

Now in its third year, National Chamber Music Day is a chance for audiences that may not otherwise engage with chamber music to catch performances in unexpected venues; from garden centres to hospitals, supermarkets to train stations, and previously the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry! National Chamber Music Day 2012 was a huge success with 78 musicians in 25 locations performing to over 4200 members of the public.

With the aim of promoting chamber music activity and helping to develop new audiences, this year’s National Chamber Music Day promises to unite musicians, promoters and new audiences across Scotland once again.

Gatehouse Music Society runs a series of four concerts in Gatehouse Parish Church over the winter months and is supporting National Chamber Music Day. Arrangements have been made for Jemma Brown, mezzo-soprano with Maryam Sherhan, piano, to perform a selection of songs from across the repertoire, including light opera, and the shows. They will be at Galloway Lodge, Gatehouse of Fleet over the lunchtime period on Saturday 14th September. Please come along to visit the Gift Shop and Café, and enjoy some music at the same time.
