Events at the Center

As soon as it is safe  to do so, Seattle Chamber Music Society will create a number of new programs and expand current programming all year round with the opening of the 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 MusiciansWe are pleased to produce a Virtual Summer Festival this July that will take place in the Center for Chamber Music, and streamed on-demand directly to you! As soon as we are able, these Festival concerts you know and love will continue at Benaroya Hall.

Once we are able to invite guests into our Center, people of all ages will come to our new home 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.

Concert Series

Festival musicians will create unique programs exploring their special interests. These may include concert exploring contemporary music, lecture/performances on specific composers, and more!

Artist Residencies

We will bring in established groups to give masterclasses in the space, as a hub for the group to go out into our community, and offer performances for all chamber music lovers.
