About Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective
“Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective is a flexible ensemble of wonderful, joyful, kind, passionate musicians who can’t wait to share chamber music with you.
Like many musicians, we spend a lot of time worrying about the world – about inequality, prejudice, violence, bullying, divisive rhetoric. Chamber music has an extraordinary power to bring people together: it unites musicians as equals, and draws listeners in to its intimate, transportive world.
We love to devise creative and innovative programmes, to curate multi-concert series and residencies, and to showcase great music both familiar and lesser-known. Our diverse and brilliant team hopes also to be able to inspire and educate audiences of all generations in the joys of chamber music, and ultimately to bring a bit of happiness and unity to our currently rather fractured-seeming world.” Read more
