Founded in 1996, The Chiltern Camerata is an amateur string orchestra for adults. Our players include music professionals and advanced amateurs.
Our objective is to share the enjoyment of music-making and to bring a wide range of music to our audiences. We stage about three concerts per year and through this we provide an opportunity for soloists to perform with an orchestra. Often we combine with wind players, choirs and others to offer a wider range of music than the typical string repertoire. We rehearse during school term time at at Holmer Green Baptist Church see map and “Rehearsals” tab.
As a non-profit organisation we simply seek to cover the costs of staging our concerts. Some of our concerts raise funds for charities.
Members pay a subscription for the pleasure of playing each concert and receive no fee.
Over the years we have presented audiences with a wide range of concerts (see past performances tab above).
Whether or not you play an instrument, if you love music and live in or around South Bucks, we hope to see you at our concerts.
The Chiltern Camerata is a member of Making Music which represents and supports amateur vocal, instrumental and promoting societies throughout the United Kingdom.
