presenting 67 years of the world’s best chamber music

Since 1950 the Cleveland Chamber Music Society has presented the most outstanding chamber music ensembles and artists. Our educational efforts have included elementary and secondary school concerts, master classes in collaboration with regional university music departments and conservatories, a Young Artists Showcase presenting a rising ensemble, and a Youth Chamber Music Challenge for high school students. Since our affordable ticket prices cover only half the costs of our concerts, we rely on your contributions as members and donors to continue our work. Join the conversation and help keep outstanding chamber music available in Northeast Ohio!

“In Plymouth’s warm, vibrant, acoustics, every detail … comes across whether you sit on the floor or upstairs… one of the best places in Cleveland to hear chamber music.”

All concerts are performed at Plymouth Church, UCC, in Shaker Heights, described as architecturally beautiful, acoustically superb, an all-season home for great
performances, and a treat for the ears and soul.
