Sunday Concerts

The 2021 series started in April and ends on 3 October.

Wellington Chamber Music presents chamber music concerts in its Sunday Concerts series on selected Sunday afternoons at 3 pm at St Andrew’s on the Terrace. Concerts typically finish before 5 pm.

Note that the Jade Quartet concert has needed to be transferred from 27 June to 18 July 2021 because of the Covid-19 Level 2 on the original date. Apologies for any impact this has on plans.

Similarly, Les Voisins who were to perform on 15 August 2021 have been replaced by Vieux Amis as the theorbo player has been unable to travel because of Covid in Australia.

New to chamber music?

Chamber music is classical music originally intended to be performed in small places (small halls, even home living rooms), by small groups of musicians (usually one to four, though sometimes up to eight).

Chamber music ensembles traditionally include duos, string trios, string quartets, piano trios, piano quartets, and wind ensembles. Wellington Chamber Music concerts may also include solo piano, singers and early music, with repertoire sourced from the Baroque period to recently commissioned works.
