'You can't easily get to concerts in the Wigmore Hall or the South Bank? No problem: we bring fine music played by top professionals to Dundee. The essence of Chamber Music is in the intimacy. You are close enough to the players to be aware of what they are putting into the music and to witness the skill of the performers in a way that you can't with an orchestra. It is the most live of live music. Since 1929. Dundee Chamber Music has been bringing the best of the world's chamber musicians to our city.'

‘The members of the Orchestra generally come from the Tayside region. When needed, extra musicians come from Edinburgh or Glasgow to fill necessary positions for our concerts.
