Welcome to Perth Chamber Music

In 2014 the Society celebrated sixty-six years’ history of bringing world-renowned musicians and exciting young performers to Perth.

Our concerts take place in the 800-year-old St. John's Kirk, one of Perth's best chamber music venues, and you can always relive the experience or whet your appetite by reading the reviews.
