So what is Chamber Music?

Chamber music is instrumental music performed by a small ensemble with one player per part. Ensembles can be composed of any variety of wind or string instruments and include duos, trios, quartets, quintets, and sextets. The majority of chamber music ensembles do not use a conductor.

Chamber Music is an intimate experience, with fewer musicians and smaller performance halls than you may be used to. Because of this, you are able to really connect with individual performers on stage and experience something that is one of the most powerfully moving art forms.

Not exclusive to classical music, chamber music can be seen in every genre of music, from baroque to jazz, popular to rap. Take a look at our upcoming performances and GET CLOSER.

The mission of the Chamber Music Society of Detroit is to bring together inspired musicians and passionate listeners for extraordinary chamber music experiences.
