Pro Corda is a music school like no other. It trains young musicians from aged 8 upwards in the art of playing chamber music. But its belief is that chamber music is so much more than just an instrumental or performance skill.

The showcase tells the story of Pro Corda from its youngest students through to those who are now training to be tomorrow’s chamber music educators, through to those whose adult lives have been shaped by chamber music. It is the story of chamber music at the heart of lives, not just on the concert platform. All proceeds will go directly to the Pro Corda scholarship fund to enable those who cannot afford course fees to access this unique and exceptional training.
