Chamber Futures is designed to help early-career, pre-established chamber ensembles with a strong interest in contemporary repertoire. This course will be led by some of the world’s most experienced chamber musicians specialising in contemporary music. Four of the course leaders are the members of the Canadian string quartet Quatuor Bozzini. They have been internationally recognised as a daring and original voice in new and experimental music for the last 20 years. They will work alongside composer and performer Mark Simpson, who has established himself as a major new voice on the world stage. As a composer Mark has worked with some of the world’s best festivals and ensembles, as well as performing worldwide as a clarinettist, both as a concerto soloist and chamber musician.

We’re so excited to spend a week honing our craft with world-renowned tutors at one of the most important centres for contemporary music in the UK.
