About Friends of Chamber Music

“For 67 seasons now, string quartets and Friends of Chamber Music have been virtually synonymous in Vancouver. This astonishingly successful organization has given its base audience remarkable opportunities to sample the world’s best in chamber music”. ––The Vancouver Sun

Welcome to the Friends of Chamber Music 68th Season of live concerts!

Our mandate is to bring the highest calibre chamber music ensembles to Vancouver so that the intimate revelations written into scores by the composers that are unique to chamber music may enrich and transform the audience through meaningful engagement.

This season boasts a wide array of music aimed to satisfy our long-standing supporters and our new audience members. Highlights include the return of the Emerson String Quartet, the Takács Quartet, and the Han Finckel Setzer Trio, –all ensembles that never cease to delight and amaze our audience. We are excited to present two young groups who are new to us: the Dover Quartet, and the Trio Shaham. The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York will send two fine ensembles. All the performances are sure to be treasured.
