Established in 1960, Chamber Music Houston, formerly known as Houston Friends of Chamber Music, is a key actor of the Houston music scene, and one of the nation’s premier chamber music presenters. Directed by a team of passionate music experts, the nonprofit brings the world’s most celebrated chamber music ensembles to Houston for a full season of intimate, engaging concerts inside the beautiful and acoustically ideal Stude Concert Hall, on the Rice University campus. Called “an unheralded leader among mainstream presenters” [Houston Chronicle], Chamber Music Houston invites audiences to experience the intimacy and excitement of chamber music at its best.
In addition to its main concert series, the organization conducts outreach events to develop the appreciation for music within the community and to foster the young students’ appreciation of music and arts.
