22nd -27th February 2021
Welcome to the homepage of the Berkshire Chamber Music Festival, a series of world class chamber music concerts and educational workshops, associated with Bradfield College, located in the heart of Berkshire.
The Berkshire Chamber Music Festival is a series of world class chamber music concerts and educational workshops which happen each Autumn.
At the core of this festival is a desire to share a love of classical music and to engage people of all backgrounds. Through our playing we hope to break down barriers and inspire, bringing an energy that enables people to open their minds and to spark passion among music lovers and those who haven’t yet discovered the power of classical music.
The 2020 festival which celebrates Beethoven's 250th anniversary will take place (in 2021...!) between the 25th and the 29th of May. Concerts will take place in Bradfield, Woodhay, Sulhamstead and Winkfield and workshops will reach children at local primary schools in the surrounding areas. We will organise social distancing within our audience to ensure the safety and wellbeing of both audience members and performers. The audience will be limited according to venue size and it will be obligatory to wear a mask. There will be no interval and the entry and exit will be staggered. The concerts will also be livestreamed on our YouTube channel. With a line-up of international musicians, we hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be a fantastic celebration of music.
Whilst face to face contact is not possible we are offering free online workshops and concerts to schools, care homes, hospices and prisons. Please contact us if you are interested in these.
