Chamber Music in Chichester
If you are looking for classical music in Chichester look no further than The Assembly Room in the Chichester Council House in North Street, where you will find a rich variety of music from Bach to Stravinsky performed by world class musicians.
Chichester Chamber Concerts is the name of the society which organises these concerts in October, November, December, January, February and March each year.
Founded in 2006 by Michael Nott this series of classical chamber music concerts has gone from strength to strength and has become a popular feature of the musical life of Chichester. String quartets were Michael’s particular love and the Skampa, Danish, Arcadia, Doric, Sacconi, Allegri and Heath Quartets have all appeared in CCC seasons.
We have the wonderful Heath Quartet playing Haydn, Beethoven and Ligeti. They played for us in 2012 and since then have been gathering awards and accolades including the 2016 Gramophone Chamber Award for their complete recording of the Tippett quartets.
The dynamic and charismatic Heath Quartet are fast earning a reputation as one of the most exciting British chamber ensembles of the moment. In May 2013 they became the first ensemble in 15 years to win the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artists Award. Formed in 2002 at the Royal Northern College of Music they were selected for representation by YCAT, were awarded a Borletti-Buitoni Special Ensemble Scholarship and in 2012 won Ensemble Prize at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
