About Norwich Chamber Music
Norwich Chamber Music (NCM) presents chamber music of the highest international standard. Our performers have been selected and engaged by our Artistic Director Misha Donat, writer, lecturer and former senior music producer for BBC Radio 3. Our concerts are held in the John Innes Conference Centre in Norwich Research Park. This offers superb acoustics, with unobstructed sightlines for all members of the audience. It is an ideal environment in which to enjoy our world-class performers. The John Innes Centre has extensive free parking; there is a large foyer with a bar open for refreshments before concerts and during the intervals. 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.
