Support the Friends of Chamber Music

brentano_op_431x244Now in its 64th year, the Friends of Chamber Music exists to promote chamber music of the highest caliber, making this unique musical art form accessible to all. We are pleased to continue our policy of presenting each concert free and without charge to the community. While our concert slate has broadened, so too have our operating expenses. Because we do not own the WCR concert hall, we must rent it in addition to compensating our wonderful musicians.

We request a donation of $125.00 per patron and would gratefully accept any further expression of your appreciation of our series, including donations “to the hat” in our venue at concert events. Our educational outreach programs and post-concert receptions would be ensured and strengthened by underwriting from general audience members and organizations. We are funded in part by the Reading Musical Foundation and the Presser Foundation. Sustaining this vital endeavor requires the additional support of loyal patrons and corporate sponsorship.┬áThe Friends of Chamber Music is a non-profit organization, and contributions are tax deductible.

We look forward to seeing you at one or more of this year’s wonderful concerts!
