The Westchester Chamber Music Society is delighted to open its 64th season with a performance of the American String Quartet. Internationally recognized as one of the world’s foremost quartets, the American String Quartet is celebrating its 39th season in 2014–2015.

Cellist Alexander Scheirle will join the American for this concert to perform the Schubert Cello Quintet.
After the concert we will have a reception with the musicians so that attendees can get to know our performers. We invite you to join us for this special event as we kick-off our new season.

Led by Dr. Caroline Bauman, a pediatrician and long-time Rye resident who has been president of the society for the past 30 years, The Westchester Chamber Music Society has been committed to bringing first-rate artists to Westchester, which included the Tokyo String Quartet in their Westchester premiere and renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Long time subscribers are joined by new members and many other guests to enjoy the very personal experience of performance that chamber music provides. The Westchester Chamber Music Society concerts are presented on Sunday afternoons at Congregation Emanu-El of Westchester in Rye, whose celebrated acoustics make it a desirable venue for internationally renowned musicians as well as emerging artists.
