About Norwich Chamber Music
In this, our 70th year, Norwich Chamber Music (NCM) continues to present chamber music of the highest international standard. Our performers are selected by Artistic Director Misha Donat, writer, lecturer and former senior music producer for BBC Radio 3. Concerts are held at the John Innes Conference Centre Hall in Norwich Research Park. There is extensive free parking, superb acoustics and unobstructed sightlines for all seats. A large foyer with a bar is open for refreshments before concerts and during the intervals. It is an excellent place to enjoy our world-class performers. The main concert hall opens 30 minutes before the performance. We ask everyone to have their tickets or season or membership ticket cards available for inspection on the door. The Committee reserves the right to change the programmes without prior notice.
