what we do

Chamber Music Foundation


The Chamber Music Foundation of New England brings together renowned performers, composers, talented youth, and emerging artists, both local and international, to collaborate and perform together in our Festival Concert Series and special events. 

In addition to performing classical music and opera, we added jazz to inspire and enrich collaboration among musicians and enhance and vary the audience experience. 

There are two main components in our organization:  music festival series and competition.

Festival and Concerts


Our Chamber Music Festival was created to provide young musicians with an opportunity to accelerate their artistic growth and to excel in their chamber musical skills by collaborating and performing together with professional musicians in a chamber music ensemble. We provide a platform for gifted musicians, young and mature professionals to keep chamber music performances alive and relevant for today’s audience.  

This Festival is organized as a series of concerts in various Greater Boston and New York venues. Concerts may include chamber music from the classical and jazz tradition where musicians and invited speakers share interesting insights engaging the audience.
