The Premier Chamber Music Festival
in the Carolinas

                                                Welcome to our 52 season!

On behalf of the Chamber Music Society of the Carolinas, I’m thrilled to announce our 2021 virtual season lineup. Please join us in July for this exceptional lineup of Facebook Live programs. 


July 10 - Jasper String Quartet


July 17 - Tesla Quartet


July 24 - Performances include:

Vadym Kholodenko, piano 

David Chan, violin 

Mariko Anraku, harp

duoJalal featuring Kathryn Lockwood, viola and Yousif Sheronick, percussion


The decision to produce a Virtual Festival this summer was a challenging one and we’re confident that you understand the health and safety of our guest artists and audience is paramount. A number of factors were considered in our process - the efficacy and distribution of vaccines around the world, the feasibility of international travel, and facility, access and usage. Warren Wilson College campus will remain closed to the public through the summer with plans to reopen in the fall. 


We graciously thank all our donors and fans for their continued support throughout this unimaginable world pandemic and want to assure you that we will keep the spirit of excellence alive through programming for this summers’ events and into next year as we plan to see you in person again in 2022.
