Chamber Music Society of St. Louis was created as the result of a demand from the community. As long-time musicians with the St. Louis Symphony, our founders often shared post-concert conversations at the Powell Hall stage door with Symphony concertgoers who lamented the lack of high quality chamber music concerts in St. Louis. CMSSL is the response to their concern.

With a commitment to our community, CMSSL has established an education series to serve students and flexible programs to make our concerts available to demographics that may otherwise not have access to the music.
