PCMS: The Authors of the City's Vibrant Chamber Music Scene

Philadelphia is a city rich with classical musical offerings, from Philadelphia Orchestra concerts at the Kimmel Center to recitals in homes, neighborhood churches, and community centers.  But there haven't always been public venues to hear chamber music – or presenters to bring in top talent.  

WRTI’s Susan Lewis looks at a driving force behind the city’s vibrant chamber music scene:  The Philadelphia Chamber Music Society. PCMS has been presenting world-class chamber music and recital concerts to the Greater Philadelphia region for more than a quarter century. The organization is committed to offering affordable tickets to listeners from all walks of life.

Check out the PCMS website for a lineup of extraordinary performances.

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.
