2020-21 Season

Due to ongoing public health concerns and the closure of Gates Hall to all public events through the end of 2020, Friends of Chamber Music regrets to announce the cancellation of all concerts originally scheduled for our fall season.
While we’re unable to gather for live concerts for now, we would like to share the extraordinary group of artists we had planned.  Their performances will be rescheduled to a future date and we look forward to welcoming you back to the concert hall soon as we can.
