Musicians go to towns

On Saturday, September 15, some of Scotland’s finest professional musicians will be performing chamber music simultaneously at 1pm all over Scotland.

This unique day has been arranged to celebrate and promote chamber music in Scotland by introducing it to new audiences who are not regularly in contact with live music.

For the second year running, National Chamber Music Day will have 78 musicians performing in 26 unusual locations all over Scotland.

The aim is to promote chamber music to the public and for promoters to make you aware of your local club. Tasters of the 500 concerts happening over the next year will be found at many venues including Dumfries, Lockerbie and Whithorn.

The musicians will be taking over public spaces in hospitals, museums,on a ferry, shopping centres, supermarkets, libraries, coffee mornings and more!

In this region, the concerts will be: Cameo Clarinet Quartet, at Garden Wise, 1-3pm, promoted by Dumfries Music Club; Duende, at Whithorn Visitor Centre, 1-3pm, promoted by Swallow Theatre Association; Stockbridge Piano Trio, at Tesco in Lockerbie, 11-1pm, promoted by Lockerbie Music Society.
