Founded in 2006, Chamber Music Charleston has perfected the art of presenting intimate evenings of chamber music in some of the most beautiful homes of Daniel Island, I’On, Kiawah and Downtown Charleston. With the audience only a couple of feet from the performing musicians and a light post-concert reception providing the opportunity to meet the musicians and fellow audience members, these extraordinary evenings of classical music have become the hallmark of Chamber Music Charleston.

During the 2012-2013 concert season, Chamber Music Charleston will perform over 60 concerts per season – from intimate House Concerts and Gallery Concerts to larger scale performances at Memminger Auditorium, Dock Street Theatre, Sottile Theatre and churches in Summerville, Edisto Island, Beaufort and Hilton Head Island. CMC’s core of 12 professional musicians includes the top classical artists residing in Charleston – all conservatory-trained musicians who have performed around the world on such renowned stages as Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall in New York City; Symphony Hall in Boston; the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria; and the Musikverein in Vienna, Austria.

At the conclusion of the season, musicians from Chamber Music Charleston will travel to New York City for their eagerly anticipated Carnegie Hall Debut on May 22, 2013. The musicians will perform a program of music that highlights the role of chamber music in Charleston from the 1800s to present day.
