Newcastle International Chamber Music Series
The Chamber Music Society was founded in 1880 to promote recitals in the Old Assembly Rooms. From the 1970s the concerts were held in the King’s Hall Newcastle University and Newcastle Playhouse, before moving to Sage Gateshead in 2005.
The Society engages performers of the highest calibre, with recent highlights including the Leonore Piano Trio, Endellion String Quartet, Divertimenti Ensemble, and the Doric String Quartet.
The Society continues to be run by a small number of volunteers and has been a registered Charity since 1998.
