Chameleon Group was a New Music organization which had been set up by composers based in Croydon (South London) as a self-support group. The group was active between 1995 and 2000 in organizing a number of contemporary music festivals and concerts.

Concerts organized in the past include concerts at the ICA, the Croydon Clock Tower and Fairfield Halls. Most of the concerts attracted the local press and have throughout received enthusiastic responses. In one instance Ruth Goslett (Croydon Advertiser, May 2nd, 1997) compared the group to Russia's Mighty Handful and France's Les Six. Even if such comparison seems overstated, it pays tribute to the fact that the group was successful in putting on more than 30 premieres by living composers. The group made a performance of a Coleridge-Taylor piece alongside with the music by Hurlstone possible, both composers who had strong associations with Croydon during their life times.

The site has been maintained by Dr L Hofmann-Engl since 1999

The group received support form Croydon, the Bliss Trust, the Britten-Pears Foundation, the Holst Foundation and others.
