The South Coast Chamber Music Society (SCCMS) was formed in 2001 to present high quality classical chamber music for the communities of Southeastern Massachusetts. SCCMS held its first subscription series concert on October 20, 2001. Since then, we have presented concerts, featuring composers from Bach and Brahms to present-day masters such as Takemitsu and Harbison. In each program, we attempt to vary the instrumentation, blending winds and strings, and engaging guest artists to present a wide range of musical colors and styles.

The South Coast Chamber Music Society is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to presenting high quality chamber music to Greater New Bedford and the communities of Southeastern Massachusetts.

It is our ambition as performers to breathe life into the artistic creation of our fellow composers, to strive to reach ever higher levels of expertise and expression, and to inspire you, the audience, to achieve great things.

A Note from the Artistic Director…

The 2013-14 season is a celebration of grandeur and playfulness in chamber music. From the awe inspiring Tschaikovsky’s Op. 11 String Quartet, Beethoven’s Tempest Piano Sonata and Schubert’s Piano Trio to the simplicity of Roszkozny’s Nocturne, the gaiety of Benjamin Dale’s Suite for Viola and Piano and the grace of Arthur Foot’s Piano Quartet, we will explore the contrast of emotion that chamber music can provide.

Our concerts typically last 90 minutes including a 10-minute intermission. Order your tickets today for this exciting season.
