From the outset, CAVATINA's outreach work was supported by a great number of professional ensembles working in the U.K. Names such as the Belcea Quartet, Chilingirian Quartet, Florestan Trio, Vanburgh Quartet, and Wihan Quartet were delighted to visit schools with the view of attracting young people to their concerts.

CAVATINA believes that the ability to undertake effective outreach work is an essential dimension for successful chamber musicians seeking to develop new audiences. These ensembles are always welcome visitors in the schools they visit and are known and loved on a personal basis.

If you'd like to get to know so of the music you might hear in chamber music concerts, you can use our suggested playlists on Spotify to start your journey. Needless to say, there's always more wonderful music to listen to - and different ensembles can play the pieces in very different ways.

And if you'd like to see some of our CAVATINA ensembles in action, have a look at our YouTube videos, which features some of their work.

We're always delighted to have more people in touch with us, and so we'd love it if you'd like us and follow us.
