Society for Chamber Music in Rochester presents five concerts in each season. We perform great works of chamber music of all periods and styles. In addition, our outreach mission reaches and teaches students of all ages and inspires chamber music’s ongoing creation through composition competitions and commissions.
The variety of music and musicians is wonderful. There is something for each of us: some old friends, some new compositions and some new composers to whet your musical appetite. We are excited about the unique collaborations featuring the wonderful musicians in all five of our concerts.
Society for Chamber Music in Rochester believes that today’s students are tomorrow’s audiences. Funded by New York State Council on the Arts, Rochester Area Community Foundation and our own generous donors, SCMR musicians perform and teach master classes in schools in the Rochester area.
The Young Composer Competitions attract entries statewide from high school and college students. Winners receive a cash prize and their chamber work is performed in a series concert. These competitions are funded by the Howard Hanson Institute for American Music at Eastman School of Music.
