Welcome to the 2024-2025 Season

We are thrilled to announce Chamber Music Charleston’s highly anticipated 2024-2025 season, marking a milestone 19 years of bringing exceptional chamber music to diverse venues across Charleston. With a commitment to showcasing the breadth and depth of chamber music repertoire, this season promises to captivate audiences with 36 concerts featuring works by 31 remarkable composers.

We welcome returning guest artists such as pianist Andrew Armstrong and violinist Francisco Fullana while also introducing you to exciting new guests such as flutist Demarre McGill and guitarist Jason Vieux.  Music returns to our beloved Dock Street Theatre and South Carolina Society Hall, but we also bring some of our biggest concerts to the gorgeous St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, just steps from Marion Square.

For the coming season we are offering a new way to select subscriptions that work for your individual schedule.  You are welcome to select from “curated” subscriptions (such as the traditional House Concert, Ovation, or Salon Series Subscription) or you can build your personalized subscription by mixing and matching the concerts you would like to attend.  Guests who renew existing Ovation and Salon Series subscriptions before March 14 will be assigned the same seats they had this current season.  Otherwise, we place guests in the best seating available, assigned in order of receipt.

If you have any questions as you explore the season, you are welcome to email  sandra@chambermusiccharleston.org.

Please note: when purchasing pick your own subscription online you only have the option for pick 3, 6, or 9.  To order any other quantity above 3 please call (843)763-4941 or use the mail in order form.
