In November 2017 Chamber Music Adelaide presented the second of its award-winning free event, On The Terrace. What better way to spend a summery Sunday than strolling between the Art Gallery of South Australia, South Australian Museum, State Library of South Australia and the Migration Museum, listening to musicians in solos, duos, trios and quartets, perform a series of short chamber recitals.  The inaugural staging of On the Terrace  won the 2016 Adelaide Critics’ Circle Award/Independent Arts Foundation Innovation Award.

On the Terrace is a free event that can be enjoyed by families of all ages, including wheelchair users and blind and vision-impaired patrons. In 2017 with the help of professional audio describers from Access2Arts, blind and vision-impaired patrons met several of the musicians before each performance, were able to feel the shape of the instruments and what they are made of, as well as learning how the sound is made. The surrounding area in which the performances were held was also described for them.
