We regret to announce that, effective immediately, all summer events and performances at Warren Wilson College have been cancelled because of coronavirus concerns.

The health and safety of our community during this challenging time is our highest priority. While we are unable to present concerts for live audiences, Chamber Music Society of the Carolinas stands by our commitment to continue bringing the best chamber music to you through online live streaming. We are striving to keep our summer schedule and are working hard to insure that our performers and our audiences will have the best chamber music experience possible by presenting live interactive concerts online.


We appreciate your long partnership and commitment to our Festival and know that, as musicians everywhere find themselves isolated, unable to perform in person for live audiences, Chamber Music Society of the Carolinas - and gifts to the Chamber Music Society  Carolina  - help artists to continue performing professionally for live audiences, no matter where they are.

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.
