Welcome to Perth Chamber Music

Since 1948 Perth Chamber Music has been organising an annual series of concerts, bringing world-class musicians and exciting young performers to Perth. In 2017 we passed the milestone of hosting our 400th concert and in 2018 we celebrated our 70th anniversary.

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.

Update 7 Jan 2021

The final blow! The latest COVID lockdown means that the remaining concerts in St. John’s Kirk on 9 Feb and 16 March have had to be cancelled. The good news is that we are hoping to reschedule them to the early Summer or to an extended 21-22 Season in the Autumn. More news of this will follow.

Also on the positive side two school music workshops have taken place online in Dunning and Forgandenny. Now that we have ‘cracked’ the technology, we hope that further exciting events can be offered to schools.
