NEWS

WCM at a Distance!

Like Picasso’s old guitarist, we’re feeling a little blue right now. For the first time in 27 years, Weekend of Chamber Music will not welcome audiences into any of our venues this summer. We’ve made the decision to err on the side of caution and do an entirely virtual festival. While parts of New York state will continue to open in the coming weeks, we can’t in good conscience bring an audience together with so much still unknown about the novel coronavirus and the toll it will continue to take on our communities.

2020 Season Passes Available

Until June 30th our 2020 Season Passes are available for only $100!

Our 27th Season Is Here!

2020 marks 27 years of WCM. We can’t wait to match the light of the mountains with music that lights our way into what’s next in chamber music. Defining this year’s programming are older works that showed us where we were headed, and new ones that sing of what’s to come. What do Beethoven, Boismortier, Debussy, Fauré, Köksal, Ravel, Rohde, Schubert and Washington all have in common? They’re all blessed with 2020 Foresight!

Two big pillars of your Artistical life are Winsor Music and Emmanuel Music…

As always, love: of chamber music, of our musical friends, and our Catskill community, is the thing that drives and sustains us, and that makes everything possible. We can’t wait to share that love with you all once again. -Andrew Waggoner & Caroline Stinson

ABOUT WCM

Artistic Directors’ Message
Weekend of Chamber Music’s 27th year!

2020: It’s a big year. Hindsight, of course, is 20/20. This year we’re looking in the other direction. Artists have always been reliable prognosticators, often hinting at what’s to come long before anyone else has caught on. Defining this year’s programming are older works that showed us where we were headed, and new ones that stretch their light out into the mid-21st century and beyond: the string Quartet Op. 18, no. 6 of Beethoven; the Sonata for Flute, Viola & Harp of Debussy; the Quartettsatz of Schubert; visionary lullabies of Fauré and Ravel; trio sonatas by baroque master Joseph Bodin de Boismortier; new works for string quartet by young composers from the U.S. and Turkey, Shelley Washington and Füsun Köksal; and works for string quartet, piano trio, and more by 2020 Composer in Residence Kurt Rohde. Known for music that is sensual, rhythmically dizzying and mind-bendingly imaginative, Mr. Rohde will be on hand for several events to work with festival artists and to meet and engage with the audience. Wherever we end up, we’re glad you’ll get there with us!

Love,
Andy & Carrie

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.
