It was formed in 2022 by a group of friends from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle and the Borders – all passionate professional chamber musicians keen to explore a larger scale repertoire.

The members of the Concerts@StCuthberts team are delighted to present the programme that consists of Strauss (Sextet from Capriccio), Greg Harradine (Flux Alluvia) and Brahms (Sextet No2 in G).
