The Westchester Chamber Music Society prides itself on presenting exciting new talent as well as internationally known ensembles. As part of our 2013-2014 concert series, we enjoyed an electrifying performance by The Dover Quartet, one of the most impressive young quartets we had heard in recent years. WCMS was proud to help launch this exceptional ensemble in Westchester County.
The Dover Quartet was catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, becoming one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world. The New Yorker recently dubbed them “the young American string quartet of the moment,” and The Strad raved that the Quartet is “already pulling away from their peers with their exceptional interpretive maturity, tonal refinement and taut ensemble.” In 2013-14, the Quartet became the first ever Quartet-in-Residence for the venerated Curtis Institute of Music.
Please join us on April 26 for a concert that is sure to be one of the most memorable you will experience during the 2014-2015 season.

The Westchester Chamber Music Society is celebrating its 64th season in 2014-2015. 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. The Society presents five concerts a year, three in the fall and two in the spring. After each concert, audience members are invited at no charge to a reception at which they can meet and speak with the musicians. “We are thrilled to provide unique occasions for Westchester residents and other attendees to connect with these very talented performers. People can ask questions about the pieces, share their thoughts or simply say hello. It is a very special opportunity for them to socialize with the musicians and others who share their love and appreciation of the music.” said Dr. Bauman.
