Chamber Babies

Crescent Arts Centre

2-4 University Road
Co. Belfast

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.


Scála Strings is a young and vibrant string quartet based in Northern Ireland. Its members are experienced musicians, having performed in some of the best venues in the country and further afield.

Past performances include BBC Radio Ulster ‘Sounds Classical’, the official naming of the ‘William J Clinton Leadership Institute’ for former US President Bill Clinton, performing for the Game of Thrones cast and crew, various BBC and UTV appearances, and special events throughout Northern Ireland such as the opening of the S.S. Nomadic, Stendhal Arts Festival and the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival.


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!
