Music in Dumfries, formerly known as Dumfries Music Club has been promoting classical chamber music since 1946.
This is our 76th season.


We organise annually a season of six or more high quality concerts, usually between September and March, with varied programmes of chamber music featuring musicians of the highest calibre. Recent performers have included Tasmin Little, Sean Shibe, Catriona Morison (2017 Cardiff Singer of the World) with Malcolm Martineau, the Maxwell Quartet, the Brodsky Quartet on their Fiftieth Anniversary Tour and Florilegium.

Extra concerts outwith the subscription series are also sometimes promoted.

The 2019-2020 season was so suddenly cut short due to Covid-19, and sadly there were no concerts at all in the 2020-2021 season. We did, however, manage to rebook all the artistes for concerts previously arranged for that season. We were delighted to welcome our audiences back and enjoyed an extremely successful series over the winter and spring. The only casualty was the postponement of Florilegium in February, due not to Covid-19 but to Storm Eunice!

A new season of seven concerts starting in September 2022 has been planned and full details are now available.

It is possible to buy a subscription for the season (seven concerts), at a considerable saving, or to buy tickets individually.

In addition to concerts we organise a number of social and fundraising activities throughout the year.

Music in Dumfries is a registered charity and is run by a group of volunteers who act as trustees.
