About Strings Attached


Membership and Coffee Concerts

Strings Attached is a membership organisation which aims to promote, develop and help publicise high quality chamber music in the Brighton & Hove area.

We encourage and support both professional and amateur chamber music making.  We are a voluntary group, working in co-operation with a range of organisations including Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival.

The Sunday morning Coffee Concerts, organised by colleagues at Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, are the regular highlight of our musical calendar.

Strings Attached aims to ensure that the pleasure of listening to high quality chamber music is available to everyone in Brighton and Hove and the surrounding area. We are especially pleased to welcome young people to the audience of the Brighton Dome and Festival Coffee concerts through our membership of the Cavatina Scheme.
