What's New

BMS’s flagship event, the International Festival of Chamber Music, is a weekend of world-class chamber music and musicians presented in partnership with Queen’s University Belfast and BBC Radio 3. 

Please note

Due to ongoing restrictions regarding live audiences for indoor events, this year’s Festival will be an online event. This is disappointing for everyone involved, not least for our audiences, but we are determined to bring you the best virtual concert experience we can. We very much hope we will be able to return to live concerts later this year.

More details coming soon.

We are delighted that Piers Hellawell, composer and Professor of Composition at Queen’s University Belfast, has recorded some reflections about chamber music, its challenges and rewards, to mark BMS’s centenary this year.  Originally planned as a guest lecture for this year’s Festival, the talk was recorded from Piers’s home on the Isle of Harris.
