It's been just a little over a year since we had to cancel our first event due to COVID-19. Since then, we also had to cancel our beloved annual Summer Solstice Music Festival, and we had to find substitute quality online programming to replace a live 2020-2021 season.

I know we all miss the experience of live music. We've come a long way, but we're not yet at a point where, as an organization, The Edmonton Chamber Music Society can feel sure that in welcoming you to a live event that we would not be taking unacceptable risk with your health and safety.

There will be no Summer Solstice Music Festival this year, and our fall 2021 programming will continue with online offerings. The Society will update you on the status of programming for January 2022 and beyond later in this year.

From our beginnings, the vision behind The Edmonton Chamber Music Society has been to be to present the highest quality live music events, to design outreach activities that showcase chamber music to a wide audience, and to promote the appreciation of chamber music within our community.

I am pleased to say that, despite the unfortunate necessity of cancelled live events, The Edmonton Chamber Music Society is able to continue with this vision.

  • We are still extending our educational outreach into new and diverse communities, and
  • We are still offering our annual scholarship to an up-and-coming young musician from the Edmonton area.

We will be keeping you updated as we move forward. I encourage you to keep reading our messages, looking to our website, and following our Facebook and Instagram accounts as we will be using them to share information and stories with you.

Again, thank you so much for being part of our community. If you have the means, please consider a donation to help us continue the work at hand, and to help us remain a strong organization that will be ready and able to bring back the live music we all love when it is safe to do so.
