'You can't easily get to concerts in the Wigmore Hall or the South Bank? No problem: we bring fine music played by top professionals to Dundee. The essence of Chamber Music is in the intimacy. You are close enough to the players to be aware of what they are putting into the music and to witness the skill of the performers in a way that you can't with an orchestra. It is the most live of live music. Since 1929. Dundee Chamber Music has been bringing the best of the world's chamber musicians to our city.'

‘The members of the Orchestra generally come from the Tayside region. When needed, extra musicians come from Edinburgh or Glasgow to fill necessary positions for our concerts. Most of the Orchestra members are amateur musicians but a good number are music teachers or ex-professional musicians ... What matters most is a love of music and the joy in creating music together. Anyone wishing to join us should have a minimum of Grade 6 and preferably Grade 8 in their orchestral instrument. A yearly bursary is offered to exceptional students studying music at the Conservatoire, Music Colleges or Universities.’
