The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Returns



The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (CMS), led by CO-ARTISTIC DIRECTORS DAVID FINKEL AND WU HAN, returns to the Spa Little Theater with a dynamic line-up of six exciting concerts (August 6 – 22).

Up-and-coming young virtuosos who wowed SPAC’s audiences and critics alike during previous CMS at SPAC residencies return, including pianist Juho Pohjonen, violinst Paul Huang, violinist Arnaud Sussmann, cellist Nicholas Canellakis,  and violist Richard O'Neill.  New to the Little Theatre stage this season will be the Danish String Quartet; a former member of the Chamber Music Society’s prestigious CMS Two program for outstanding young artists, the ensemble has quickly risen to become one of the world’s most acclaimed quartets.  

Admission to CMS concerts will also include admission to the popular Chamber Chats series; half-hour discussions with the artists which will be held 45 minutes prior to each performance. Also following each Sunday concert will be the widely popular Artist Meet-&-Greet Receptions, an opportunity to meet some of todays most influential and esteemed chamber musicians at the Gideon Putnam Hotel.
