Dear friends,

I am very excited to present to you our 2019-2020 Season. We have an incredible series of concerts in store for us and there is one particular event which we are especially pleased to announce. On Tuesday, March 24, 2020 legendary concert violinist Midori will perform a recital to benefit Chamber Music Charleston. This is an extraordinary opportunity to hear a violinist of such skill and passion perform in the glorious space of St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church.

Our season also includes the ever popular House Concert Series and the continuation of the Ovation Concert Series with a return collaboration with the Música en Segura Festival. You will also notice we have created a new Sunday afternoon series, the Salon Series, that combines light classical works with innovative cross-over pieces in the elegant South Carolina Society Hall.

There is so much to share with you in the 2019-2020 season, and I look forward to seeing you in the audience!

Most sincerely,

Sandra Nikolajevs, President & Artistic Director, Chamber Music Charleston
