It’s all very well presenting leading chamber musicians performing delightful programmes but a key factor in the success of the Adam Chamber Music Festival is the fact that Nelson enjoys wonderful venues with perfect acoustics for chamber music.

The Nelson School Of Music has been described as one of the finest chamber music concert halls in the Southern Hemisphere with its wooden panelling and up-turned boat shaped roof.

Nelson Cathedral has an acoustic which is more reverberant and is ideally suited for earlier music such as Bach. In fact the Bach by Candlelight concert is always very popular with subtle candlelight hues adding to an other worldly experience.
