Ten days of classical chamber music at Paxton House and elsewhere in the beautiful Scottish Borders.
Music at Paxton is a 10-day summer chamber music festival located in the house & grounds of Paxton House & elsewhere in the Scottish Borders.
Paxton’s Picture Gallery is an outreach of the National Galleries of Scotland, with acoustics that might have been designed specifically for chamber music. Informal events are presented in the Marquee, overlooking the River Tweed & the historic Union Chain Bridge.
The 2022 programme will feature:
• Our Associate Ensemble, the Maxwell Quartet in residence;
• An exciting range of guest musicians, including baritone Roderick Williams, pianist Angela Hewitt, & mezzo-soprano Dame Sarah Connolly with duo partner Joseph Middleton;
• A new Paxton Festival commission;
• Family-inspired events;
• Folk music & pre-festival concerts in partnership with Live Music Now Scotland.
Full programme to be announced April 2022.
