A favourite of chamber ensembles, this space hosts groups such as the Jupiter Symphony Chamber Players and the Mendelssohn String Quartet. The performances are free but the seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Navigating the one-way streets around the Academy can be tricky so either take a cab or study your map before you set out.
