Our 64th Season!
Dear Friends of the Cleveland Chamber Music Society,
Chamber music is where "classical music" began!
Classical music started with a few musicians playing for a king's court. It grew to today's large orchestras playing in halls designed to hold thousands. It includes "Three Tenors" singing for tens of thousands in stadiums. From its intimate beginnings, classical music has grown to proportions unthinkable centuries ago.
In these huge arenas, why has intimate chamber music endured? The answer is axiomatic: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." When a small ensemble of self-directing artists makes music, the pleasure of up-close sound and sight is as delightful to us today as it was centuries ago for royalty.
Superlative music, fine instruments, and engaged audiences. These are the pleasure principles that CCMS offers you for Season 64 in the acclaimed acoustics of Plymouth Church near Shaker Square.
You can enhance your pleasure and our chamber music mission through attendance (a full subscription is your best value at $18.75 per ticket vs. $20 last year), membership, donations, and legacy gifts. You can also volunteer your skills and talents.
Join CCMS this season and enjoy chamber concerts by the finest ensembles from around the world. You, too, can share a timeless, intimate experience fit for a king!
Richard Fried, President
