Festival Series

Festival Series Chamber Music Concerts

Since 1979, the USCB Festival Series has presented internationally renowned artists, such as pianists Jean-Yves Thibaudet and Jeremy Denk, violinists Joshua Bell and Robert McDuffie, flautist Paula Robison, cellist Carter Brey, and the Brooklyn Rider, Emerson, Tokyo and St. Lawrence Quartets. 

With Charles Wadsworth, credited by many with reviving interest in chamber music at Lincoln Center and at Spoleto Festivals in Italy and Charleston, and Edward Arron, director of the amazingly popular and  critically acclaimed New York Metropolitan Museum chamber series for the past decade, the quality of the musical selections and the talents of the artists have surprised and delighted audiences, who come from throughout the region.

For the enjoyment of everyone, please be advised that these concerts are not suitable for infants and young children. Admission is at the discretion of the management.
