Bringing international musicians and great chamber music to Northumberland.

As well as bringing high quality professional musicians to perform great chamber music in Alnwick we are committed to a programme of education and outreach.

What we have done so far

In the past five years we have arranged the following:

  • Workshop for local singers led by an early music group
  • Children’s concert linked to Roald Dahl stories
  • Interactive family concert of folk and world music
  • Workshops in local schools led by a Saxophone Quartet
  • Several hour-long morning concerts by young artists
  • Woodwind concert for the Alnwick Garden Elderberries
  • Brass Quintet schools’ concert in Alnwick Playhouse
  • Beethoven’s Late Quartets with an actor
  • Weekend Festival of Music in Alnwick Playhouse involving local musicians and groups along with well-known national and international professional musicians and young artists, including different types of music – vocal, choral, jazz and opera – live piano music accompanying silent film, violin and piano masterclasses for local young students, an event for families with young children and culminating in a closing event for local community groups and musicians.

Keeping in touch

Our education and outreach plans for the coming season will be finalised once we know how much money we have attracted from grants and our patronage scheme. Members and all those on our mailing list will be kept up to date with our plans.

How you can help

Around 40 of our members give generously through our patronage scheme to ensure that the quality of artists we book in our main season remains high and helps in the development of our outreach and education programme. You do not have to be a member to give through this scheme and, assuming that you pay tax, we can claim gift aid on donations.

Become a Patron

By becoming a Patron you help us bring top quality artists to Alnwick and develop our Outreach and Education programme.

UK Taxpayers can Gift Aid donations and increase the amount given to our Patronage Scheme by 25% at no extra cost.
