Events at the Center

Beginning this May, Seattle Chamber Music Society will create a number of new programs and expand current programming all year round with the opening of theĀ Center for Chamber Music. We will update all of our events with more details, including how to get tickets for programs soon. Here is a sample of programming in the new space.

WHAT TO EXPECTChamber MusiciansThe Festival concerts you know and love will continue at Benaroya Hall, and now for the first time in our history, people of all ages will come to our Center to learn, listen, play and enjoy this intimate art form through new concerts, programs, classes and multimedia presentations.

Events like our Classical Conversation podcast, Master Classes, and
rehearsals will take place in the Center during the Winter and Summer
Festivals. Throughout the rest of the year, new programs will continue to
bring you closer than ever to the music, with several series taking place in the intimate 60-seat Living Room, the heart of the new Center.
