                 Greetings Chamber Music Society of the Carolinas Music Lovers!

    We are so happy to announce the 51st Season of our Chamber Music Series!

Given what’s happening in our world at this writing, we are assuming that the cancellations due to the Coronavirus will have righted themselves and that by the beginning of July our lives will be normalized and our festival will go on.

I’m sure we will all be craving the nourishment of great music.

The Premier Chamber Music Festival
in the Carolinas

                                                Welcome to our 51st. season!

 We are happy to announce our upcoming season - July 11 through August 3 2020 - showcasing the highest excellence of musical artistry. Our fantastic string quartets - the Jasper Quartet and the Tesla Quartet will be returning.

We are very thrilled to introduce the Callisto String Quartet – an electrifying young group which has earned major prizes in the last couple of years in U.S., Europe, Canada and Australia, including the Grand Prize at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition.

We welcome internationally renowned soprano Elizabeth Dabney, who was praised by the New York Times for her ‘beautiful tone’ and ‘clear emotional commitment’. We are also excited to introduce Igor Begelman - acclaimed clarinetist, who has been praised by critics for offering a "remarkable display of music making" and who has earned an impressive list of prizes, engagements and honors, including the Avery Fisher Career Grant awarded to outstanding American artists.

We have wonderfully innovative and compelling programs in store – with a generous helping of Beethoven in honor of his 250 birthday!

We look forward to sharing yet another spectacular season with you. Plan on joining us this July and August, and relish the musical mastery we bring to the beautiful Carolinas.
