Our partnership with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center concluded with the final limited engagement which ended on May 31.

This presentation featured the Calidore String Quartet a young ensemble that is generating a great deal of enthusiasm for their recordings and performances. A review in the Violin Channel said “The New York-based Calidore String Quartet has in recent years firmly established themselves as one of the most celebrated young chamber ensembles to emerge internationally – praised for their confidence, finesse, intellect and expression.” While the limited engagement has ended, we will continue to present a different performance of the Calidore String Quartet performing Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in F minor via YouTube.

Update on our plans for the Fall and Spring concert series

We are becoming optimistic about the possibility of having live concerts beginning in September. Here is an update from the president of Friends Of Music Concerts.

View the complete schedule of streaming performances on this page.


Supporting Classical Musicians in a Time of Need

Donations from our supporters and a grant from ArtsWestchester have made these streaming performances possible. These limited run engagements provided some income to professional musicians who were deprived of their livelihood during this painful period. Friends Of Music Concerts is an all-volunteer nonprofit dedicated to advancing chamber music in Westchester County, New York. We hope you’ll join the community. You can participate in our Facebook group to spread the word and consider a donation. And when in-person concerts are possible, we hope to see you. We have a full schedule planned for Fall 2021 and Spring 2022. You’ll find details on this page.
