Friends of Chamber Music


The Athenaeum Friends of Chamber Music is a group of individuals who contribute especially to support the Athenaeum’s chamber music programming. The Friends of Chamber Music mission is to ensure that Athenaeum chamber concerts continue to offer a compelling mix of established performers and carefully chosen emerging stars. We present highlights of the beloved canon of chamber music repertoire, enriched by a judicious selection of new compositions and unjustly neglected gems from the past three hundred years.


The Athenaeum is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. Please contact the Athenaeum at (858) 454-5872 during normal library hours if you have any questions.
