Formed in 2004, The Chamber Music Society of Central Virginia is a growing organization dedicated to presenting traditional and contemporary classical music in intimate venues throughout the historic metropolitan Richmond area. Over the past years, we have presented music ranging from Baroque opera to electronic music, and we pride ourselves on our eclectic and exciting concert programming.
Our world-class performers include the top chamber musicians in the world, younger artists just establishing their international careers, and favorite musicians from the Richmond region and greater Virginia.
Through our educational programming we present free concerts for families, students, seniors, hospital patients, and others. Partnering with the Richmond Public Library, our series of free concerts at the Gellman Room in the Main Richmond Public Library regularly draws capacity crowds.
We invite you to attend one or all of our events, become a member of our society, or volunteer your time and talents. We are certain you will enjoy the experience.
Flexible in personnel and repertoire, the Chamber Music Society of Central Virginia strives to empower our audience, musicians, and organization to face the world with new perspectives through music, building a broad and active audience, and a more enlightened industry.
We are dedicated to inspiring, entertaining, and moving our communities through a combination of unique venues, world-class musicians, thought-provoking content, and eclectic classical music. Engaging with contemporary culture and honoring the classical tradition, we strive to promote interest and diversity in the musical life of Richmond and beyond.
