The Vienna Piano Trio, one of the most outstanding chamber ensembles of our time, brings an "electrifying" [The New York Times] presence to the Austrian repertoire.

We hope you will join us for an incredible evening on March 10th.

We doubt you need another reason to listen to Classical Music, but this interesting article with the 20 Health Benefits of Music is certainly a good excuse.
A growing body of research says music isn't just good for helping us get into our groove; it also benefits our physical and mental health in a slew of different ways.

We finished one amazing performance and now we are on to the next. Thank you to Cantus for a great evening, and we are looking forward to the incredible Wiener Klaviertrio - Vienna Piano Trio next month.

“Sentimental? Not a bit of it. This is one of 20th-century music’s most heartfelt expressions of nostalgia and melancholy as well as tenderness. Listen to this with the one you love…”

We recommend this lovely Valentine’s Day Classical Music playlist for your date tomorrow.

They grace the Chamber Music Houston stage so often, many times we forgot how complex the instrument actually is. Enjoy this short video of how the violin is made.

The Washington Post has hailed tonight’s ensemble as possessing a sound with both “exalting finesse” and “expressive power.” We will see you tonight for what will surely be an incredible performance from Cantus.

New Season. New Name. New Experience.
Introduction

“…the crème de la crème of classical music's intimate scene ….”  Culturemap

KEY ACTOR

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.

NEW NAME

The 2014/15 season of Chamber Music Houston starts with a new name and a beautiful new logo. Houston Friends of Chamber Music becomes Chamber Music Houston and introduces a new look to convey the excitement, intimacy and energy presented by its concert experience.
