The inside story of how the chamber orchestra works


Inside Story celebrates the unique and intimate world of the chamber orchestra. Through a wide range of ever-growing online content, we will share stories about our musicians, our music, and the experience this creates for you, our audiences.

Hear our musicians talk about why they do what they do; learn about how classical music was performed in the North East in the 1800s; or interact with musical material to understand how it is made. There is much to discover.
