A little about
Newry Chamber Music

David and Joanne Quigley, founders of Newry Chamber Music

Hello

My name is Joanne Quigley, I am a professional violinist originally from Camlough, Co. Armagh. My brother David and I set up Newry Chamber Music some years ago, with the aim of bringing world class professional chamber music concerts to the people of Newry and the surrounding areas. As professional musicians, we know that the perception of classical music can be that it is high brow, difficult to understand and even intimidating!

At NCM, we believe that everybody can enjoy this wonderful art form, and should be encouraged to do so. As artists, it is our responsibility to make that happen!

With that in mind, we aim to present all of our concerts in a relaxed format, whilst still maintaining the highest artistic standards. If you attend a Newry Chamber Music concert you are guaranteed a great evening's entertainment. Our artists will introduce themselves and more importantly will talk about the music they are going to play, giving you some background about the composer, when the work was written, it's historical context and what to listen out for. We like to feel connected to our audience so that we can all experience the joy of music making together.

We look forward to welcoming you to our events. We have a wonderful line up of musicians and unmissable performances coming your way in 2017.
