A New Season Begins

By jacob on October 21, 2009

Each year about this time the hustle and bustle of the summer months transitions to an excitement that reminds all of us why we do what we do.  During the summer we work tirelessly preparing for our upcoming season - finalizing artist contracts, arranging concert hall details, renting pianos, booking hotel rooms, writing grants, collecting feedback, and marketing our programs.

Come October, there is an mix of excitement and anticipation in the air at 1616 Walnut Street, something akin to the pause just before running a marathon.  Watching the Phillies beat the Dodgers last night at Jose Pistola's around the corner from the Kimmel Center with Miles, Brian, Brad, Sacha, and Jen (after a stunning performance by the always-sparkling Emerson Quartet), the annual shift in attitude was particularly pronounced.


What are we so excited about (besides the Phillies)?  Over the next 7 months, PCMS will present 65 concerts attended by nearly 25,000 people and facilitate some 50 educational outreach concerts, lectures, and master classes impacting thousands of young people in our region.

At the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society (PCMS), our mission rings clear.  We believe that people from all walks of life should have access to the best classical music experiences that the world has to offer.

How can we guarantee this experience for you?  By providing a unique, affordable ticket policy:  $23 or less per ticket.

Join the PCMS family as we enter another exciting new season.  We look forward to seeing you at a concert soon!
