Chamber Babies concert's are very informal events with short programmes that are designed for babies and adults alike.
You can walk, sway, crawl, roll, dance or just chill out to a careful selection of short classical pieces designed both to engage and enchant (or soothe to sleep!). Concerts are aimed at babies from 0-18 months old.
The Cellists (cello duo)
Having performed separately in many a string quartet, professional cellists Cecily Smith Nesbitt and Andrew Nesbitt came together to form what has become “The Cellists” in 2008.
The Cellists is a professional cello duo providing high-quality, enjoyable string music of all types and genres, including Classical, Indie, R&B, Rock, Pop, Film and Dance music. Cecily also has many years’ experience of bringing music into hospitals, and has been associated with the Medical Notes project at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital as a performer and mentor. When she’s not doing any of that, she’s studying part-time for her Masters in Psychology and probably also knitting/sewing!
Chamber Babies is a venture initiated by Belfast Music Society (BMS) in 2014, designed to offer the best live classical music to the youngest listeners (and their mums and dads). We are delighted to be working in partnership with the BMS on this venture, and concerts take place in the relaxed setting of The Crescent's Cube.
All Chamber Babies concerts are performed by professional classical musicians from Northern Ireland. We welcome all listeners, no matter how young (including mums with bumps!). Take time to enjoy coffee and cake at the Crescent Arts Centre’s cafe before or after the concert.
These concerts are designed specifically for babies UP TO the age of 18 months. We reserve the right not to permit entry for older babies/children. If you are bringing more than one baby, please make sure there is more than one adult in your party!
