Enterprise Music Scotland: The National Body for Chamber Music – leading, developing and connecting the chamber music sector in Scotland.
Enterprise Music Scotland provides services to four main stakeholders:
- The general public (audience)
- Chamber Music Promoters
- Chamber Music Performers
- Chamber Music Collaborators
Through working collaboratively with all of our main stakeholders and Creative Scotland, EMS secures funding for distribution to the member promoters, subsidising musicians’ fees and ticket prices to ensure accessibility for the general public across Scotland. All the concerts subsidised by EMS are open to the general public with season tickets and subscriptions available for some. For further details locate a promoter near you and visit their own website.
EMS also works with Chamber Music Performers and Collaborators, providing performance and professional development opportunities. In addition to this work EMS also has an Education & Outreach programme which supports and funds education workshops delivered in Primary, Secondary and ASN schools across Scotland.
Enterprise Music Scotland is both a Company limited by Guarantee and a Scottish Charity. EMS is governed by a Board of Directors who donate their time and expertise to oversee the charitable remit of the organisation.

JAM on the Marsh is an annual multi-arts festival built around Kent’s magnificent Romney Marsh and its famous medieval churches. Each year JAM on the Marsh crosses the Romney Marsh from Dungeness to Hythe and Lympne to New Romney. The Marsh churches are true beacons of culture and history; they are the heart of the festival.
The role of Curator is an important one in how JAM on the Marsh is programmed. The position of Curator can only be held by a person for two years. This ensures that the festival is ever-developing and continuously changing. Curators to date have included the internationally renowned composers, Judith Bingham and Paul Mealor and for 2017 / 18 the organist and conductor, Daniel Cook (Westminster Abbey).
