Under the artistic direction of cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han, The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center is America’s foremost repertory company for chamber music, and one of eleven constituent members of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Founded in 1969, CMS presents a full season of world-class musicians annually in its specially designed home at Alice Tully Hall, in the more intimate Daniel S. and Joanna S. Rose Studio, and on tour throughout the country as well as internationally. In so doing, it draws more listeners to chamber music than any other organization of its kind. Beyond the concert hall, CMS also offers a rich variety of activities to introduce new audiences—children, families, and adults—to the world of chamber music. Through informative and entertaining educational programs; live, recorded, and televised performances; extensive commissioning; radio broadcasts; new music series; and young artists’ programs, CMS actively promotes a love and appreciation for a body of music that stands among the finest achievements of our civilization.
