Hailed as a group with imagination, style and chops, the Worcester Chamber Music Society took the Worcester, Massachusetts scene by storm with its initial concert in 2005. It has become a recognized cultural presence within the Greater Worcester area by presenting sold-out concerts to captivated audiences, receiving consistent critical acclaim, building new young audiences, and training rising musicians through both its Neighborhood Strings and Summer Festival programs.

This concert and residency is presented with the generous support of the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies and the Traina Chamber Music Fund, Department of Visual & Performing Arts/Music.
