Going Strong: Philadelphia Chamber Music Society

PCMS presents Belcea Quartet on October 17th at 8 pm at the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater.

The Philadelphia Chamber Music Society (PCMS) has been feeding the growing musical appetites of music lovers for decades with increasing numbers of concerts. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, PCMS grew out of the celebrated Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont, where gifted classical musicians have been playing chamber music since 1951.

Take a look at the concert calendar for PCMS,which includes upcoming performances by the Juilliard Quartet, pianist Yefim Bronfman, and Quatuor Mosaïques. PCMS presents 65 concerts this season.

Listen to Susan’s interview with Tony Checcia and Phillip Maneval of the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, for more about creating a vibrant Philadelphia chamber music scene.

Susan writes and produces stories about music and the arts. She’s host and producer of WRTI’s TIME IN online interview series, and contributes weekly intermission interviews for The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert series. She’s also been a regular host of WRTI’s Live from the Performance Studio sessions.
