Tarbert Camerata
We are a group of amateur musicians who meet once a week on Sundays to play chamber music. We include strings, piano and woodwind and our repertoire ranges from early baroque to the present day: from Bach to Bernstein, from Mozart to Morricone and everything inbetween.
We have a special interest in authentic early music performance style, but we’re equally happy playing Hungarian gypsy music and Argentine tangos. Instrumentally, we’re a very flexible ensemble (at the moment all girls) and always pleased to welcome new players.

Sessions take place on the top floor, on Sundays from 5-7pm, with a weekly contribution of £3, to cover hire of the facility and the purchase of music.
