2021-22 Season

Friends of Chamber Music is proud to announce its long-awaited 2021-22 season of extraordinary artists.  With the return of live concerts, the safety of our community remains paramount.  The season is a bit shorter than usual and our plan is to open the hall at a reduced capacity for the first three concerts of the season.  We will comply with the most current Covid19 guidelines and protocols and will communicate those in a timely fashion as we near the opening date of the season on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. 

Subscription packages will go on sale at 10 AM on Wednesday, August 4. Subscription sales will be limited to current subscribers through August 18, and then will open to new subscribers based on available capacity.  New this year, all subscriptions will be handled by the the Newman Center Box Office, and packages can be purchased online (click here) or through the mail (previous subscribers were mailed a package this week).  Due to reduced seating capacity within the hall, subscriptions are limited, so order today!
