In All Times, Music Unites Us—It is a Constant Companion, Inspiration, and Source of Strength
We are sorry that the virus outbreak compelled us to cancel the remainder of our 2019/20 Season. We were so looking forward to enjoying these wonderful artists and works with you. We are pleased to report that, because of your contributions and ticket donations, we were able to provide some compensation to those musicians whose concerts could not take place, and who rely on performance fees for their livelihoods.We hope you will subscribe to our 2020/21 Season, as we celebrate our 35th Anniversary in safer and happier times to come. Your orders and Annual Fund support ensure that we will emerge from this period in a strong position, ready for “social closeness,” and to provide the exceptional music-making that has enriched us all since 1986. If anything good has come from this outbreak, it is our increased appreciation of the beauty, meaning, and healing power of live performance.We thank you for your friendship, encouragement, and generosity, and we hope that you stay well, upbeat, and engaged. Please know that our thoughts are with you, and we will make it to the other side of this together!
The Philadelphia Chamber Music Society has taken the lead as the city's constant reminder that it's all about artists and repertoire. In fact, without a single concession, the scale and quality of the series is unlike anything else in the country.
We aspire to be a “Society” in the best sense of the word—a group of people who love great music and believe that it should be accessible to everyone.
Whether it's your 1st or 100th concert, you are welcome here. Find out what we're all about and how to make the most of your experience.
A weekly update from Artistic Director Miles Cohen
The Philadelphia Chamber Music Society supports an end to racism in the arts, our city, and our nation. We must listen and learn from those who have faced oppression and injustice throughout their lives, and we stand in solidarity with all black lives.
