CHAMBER MUSIC PLUS
August 2022 to July 2023
“If music be the food of love, play on…”
The first line of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night is such a familiar quotation, but one that is perhaps particularly relevant in these times.
After the deprivations of the pandemic, concert-going is at last beginning to return to near-normal – but organisations promoting music suffered severely financially during lockdown and appreciate more than ever your support. Our Chamber Music Plus brochures give you the opportunity to discover familiar and perhaps less-familiar music and venues, from chamber music to choral and orchestral concerts and opera.
The Northern edition includes performances in:
Accrington, Barnsley, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Blackburn, Bollington, Bradfield, Buxton, Carnforth, Corbridge, Derby, Doncaster, Dumfries, Edinburgh, Hexham, Kendal, Knutsford, Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Macclesfield, Manchester, Nottingham, Penrith, Peterborough, Ripon, Sheffield, Southwell, Stoke-on-Trent, Windermere
Each concert listing gives the promoter’s name and box office information. Many of the concerts are given in venues which have unreserved seating, with tickets at just one price. Some promoters offer concessions and these vary, some just applying to young people and/or students, some to disabled or the unwaged. Some venues charge a booking fee on top of the listed ticket price, and/or make a charge for postage; please check the details when purchasing your tickets.
Most concerts included on this website are part of a series, and subscribing to several of these concerts can provide for significant savings on the cost of individual tickets. Additional information is available from the postal and web addresses provided towards the back of the brochure.
Please do mention Chamber Music Plus to promoters when booking your tickets – we could not publish this cornucopia of music without their support.
