About SCMS //

Our mission is to foster the appreciation of chamber music in our region by presenting performances featuring world-class musicians in accessible and inviting formats, with an emphasis on developing a broad-based sustainable audience through education and community outreach.

Each year, Seattle Chamber Music Society (SCMS) presents a winter festival in January and summer festival in July at the Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall. In addition to its high quality performances, SCMS offers community engagement programs for adults, youths and the community-at-large to encourage audience appreciation and understanding of chamber music. These programs bring audiences of all ages in close contact with musicians and their music through informal, accessible and enjoyable formats.
