Our 65th Season!

Dear Friends of the Chamber Music,

It is my joy and pleasure to welcome you to our 65 season for the finest chamber music performed by the finest chamber ensembles the world has to offer.

With so much chamber music available, it seems we will never reach the bottom of the barrel. Over the years we have discovered each season's uniqueness. Whether it's "coming home" to the familiar or a "new outing" to the unknown, there is always a sense of adventure that entertains and satisfies the human psyche.

We welcome tenor Ian Bostridge with Wenwen Du, piano, for the first time. Join us for outstanding performances of returning favorites such as Wu Han, Philip Setzer, and David Finckel; the Juilliard, Belcea, and Jerusalem Quartets; Steven Isserlis, cello, with Robert Levin, piano; and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.

A full-season subscription of seven concerts is still only $140. "Choose Any Four" subscriptions are only $100. These are bargain prices compared to venues in other cities. In the arts, no one surpasses Cleveland for value! Subscriptions and tickets help support our efforts, but they cover less than half the cost of our presentations. Support our mission through Society membership starting at just $25. Consider honorarium gifts and estate legacy donations to help us provide you with outstanding performances. All gifts are fully tax-deductible.

If you are interested in contributing time to make these concerts happen, make a note on your order form, contact us through email, or call our office. We're a friendly bunch and will be glad to welcome you with open arms!

Richard Fried, President
