Fermata Festival

ChamberMusicBox are delighted to present a weekend-long celebration of music and visual art, featuring four live concerts by internationally renowned artists to accompany an exhibition of 100 artworks created by more than 40 classical musicians during the Covid-19 pandemic, when concert halls were silent. The exhibition is being curated by renowned gallery owner and arts consultant Alan Kluckow. Click here to read more about the festival.


ChamberMusicBox was founded in 2016 when a group of leading international musicians came together from across Europe to perform a series of chamber music concerts in London.

Its Artistic Directors, violinist Yuri Kalnits and cellist Julia Morneweg, had a vision to explore and perform a vast spectrum of exciting repertoire with their like-minded and exceptionally talented friends, to promote mutual respect and empathy in the community through music-making of rare passion and generosity, and for audiences to be part of that shared experience.

With countless appearances on the big international stages, dozens of prizes at some of the world’s most prestigious competitions, and a host of acclaimed recordings between them, this ever-growing community of outstanding European musicians thrives on creating projects and concert programmes as diverse as they are unique.
