Welcome to the Ipswich Chamber Music Society

Welcome to the website of Ipswich Chamber Music Society (ICMS), one of the oldest organisations of its kind in the UK. For almost 100 years we have been inviting leading instrumentalists and ensembles to Ipswich, and we are delighted to present another season of wonderful music performed by some of today’s finest musicians.


All our concerts are held on Saturday evenings in Great School (the main hall) at Ipswich School. With its excellent acoustics, raked seating and clear sightlines, Great School is an ideal venue for chamber music. Refreshments are available during the interval at each concert, and audience members are welcome to park for free in the school grounds.


We encourage people to join the Society by buying season tickets, which offer tremendous value for money – five concerts for the price of three. We also have a Friends scheme for those who wish to support ICMS financially, and we are always very pleased to hear from potential sponsors of individual concerts.
