Who We Are

The Chamber Music Society of Utica had its beginnings in 1941, with a small group which played together. We are among the oldest of the chamber music presenting organizations in the country. We have survived because our patrons believe in the value of the Society and have a passion for the power of music. The Board of Trustees is a completely volunteer [read: no paid staff, no office space!] organization which works closely together season after season to bring the greatest possible value of ticket and patronage funds to our stage. So that you may know who we are, our names are listed below, including honorary members who have served long and those who are currently officers. We welcome your comments and calls always.
