We’ll Always Have Paris

When we titled this year’s festival it was in a state of grace, a suspended moment of joy at the thought of the garden of delights we had planted for the summer…

Artistic Directors’ Message
Into the Light in 2021

With high hopes for the new year, Weekend of Chamber Music celebrates the passing of 2020 with plans for our 2021 season, Into the Light: a festival of dreams, of active imagination for the restoration of our health, our communities, our spirits, and our aching planet. Whether in person, online, or some mix thereof, WCM will be with you through this pivotal time.

2020 was hard on all of us. At WCM we missed so much seeing all of you in the summer, and missed living and working and making music together. We pushed through, though, just like everyone. We loved our online festival, and were incredibly moved both by the work of all our artists and by the response from all of you. Now we’re ready to get back at it! Whether in person or online again, we’ll be there for you with music that lives at the center of where we find ourselves right now: the Heiliger Dankgesang, Beethoven’s shattering, deeply moving song of healing; the premiere of Huijuan Ling’s Whalefall, for piano quartet; new quartets of Füsun Köksal and Shelley Washington; works of surpassing beauty by Composer in Residence Kurt Rohde; Schumann’s d minor Piano trio; and the electrifying Quartettsatz of Schubert. Into 2021 we go, into light, into hope!

Our Mission

We engage the public of the Catskills and the Upper Delaware region directly by bringing transformative performances of, and discussion around, chamber music to a wide variety of venues across the region. With events each season in a converted barn (our main concert home); a distillery; a country inn; a farmer’s market; a church lawn; a repurposed school; and an old mill-turned-gallery, we bring our work straight to the people wherever they are.  Our commitment to what we see as an essential mix of standard repertoire, new music, encounters with living composers, and improvisation, ensures that our audiences come to see chamber music as a vital, contemporary, evolving art form, one that speaks directly to them, of their lives and their shared humanity.
