If you associate classical music with opera houses and black tie, then it's time to enter a brave new world. Surry Hills' underground bar Soultrap is bringing violins, violas and cellos into the bar. And you're welcome to wear jeans and drink cocktails.

Spearheaded by pianist Evan Streater, The Chamber Project is a new gig series aiming to get you to experience classical music in a fun, relaxed environment. You'll hear some of Australia's best musicians, many of whom work regularly with Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the Australian Chamber Orchestra. But, rather than watching them from the discomfort and distance of a concert hall's nosebleed section, you'll be up-close.

The next Chamber Project —titled Four. Three. Two — is happening at 6pm on Thursday, June 6, then again on the Queen's Birthday public holiday, Monday, June 10 from 3.30pm. Featured on the program is a quartet of two violins, a viola and a cello, set to play Haydn's String Quartet in D minor, Op. 76 No. 2, 'Fifths' and Philip Glass' String Quartet No. 3, 'Mishima'. These larger works will be interwoven with arrangements of Nordic folk tunes. Between each 20-to-30-minute piece will be a break so you can grab another drink and soak in what you've just heard.

Several types of tickets are available. Opt to sit up close at a table and you can be treated to charcuterie and cheese boards. Meanwhile, holders of standing tickets will score a gourmet toastie and/or cocktail.

The Chamber Project will take place on Thursday, June 6 from 6pm and Monday, June 10 from 3.30pm. To purchase tickets, head this way
