About the organizer

Since 1981, Market Square Concerts has been dedicated to the presentation of a wide repertoire of chamber music performed by distinguished professional artists, both established and emerging. Our mission also includes education and engagement of the general public in chamber music as an art form, as well as collaboration with other arts organizations and community partnerships. With an annual summer festival and six concerts in the regular season, Market Square Concerts presents premieres of newly composed music as well as the monumental works from the most revered composers from the past and present.

This season we celebrate not only our 40th anniversary, but also the ever-evolving mosaic of meaning that chamber music has grown into.

Over the last three centuries performers and composers of vastly different backgrounds have enriched this art form with their contributions and ensured its relevance to contemporary experience. When Haydn created his sublime and clever string quartets as a pastime for aristocracy, he didn’t know that same four instruments will be used by Shostakovich to capture the horrors of life under totalitarian dictatorship, and Schubert certainly didn’t anticipate his string quartets being successfully reimagined by four saxophones, because the instruments didn’t even exist during his lifetime. The current explosion of creativity in chamber music is exciting. It includes new combinations of instruments, it is infused with stylistic influences from all over the world and musicians today also pay homage to many unjustly overlooked composers from the past.

We hope that you will join us as we celebrate our 40th anniversary and experience the richness and vitality of our beloved art form.

Mask wearing is now optional to attend the remaining performances of our 40th Anniversary Season. 

As the situation continues to evolve, please check our website a week prior to each concert for any changes to this policy.
