The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (CMS) is the resident company at Lincoln Center devoted to the performance and creation of chamber music. Directed by David Shifrin, its pioneering structure, a core of distinguished artist members augmented by invited guests, allows for a repertoire of the widest instrumental and stylistic range.

The Chamber's wide-ranging activities include concerts at Lincoln Center, national and international tours, nationally televised broadcasts on "Live from Lincoln Center," and regular features on both National Public Radio's "Performance Today" and Public Radio International's "Chamber Music New York."

As the nation's premier repertory company for chamber music, CMS strives to bring audiences the finest performances of repertoire dating as far back as the Renaissance and continuing through the centuries to include the finest music of our time. In addition, CMS has commissioned more than 110 new works from an impressive array of composers. In Alice Tully Hall, its home at Lincoln Center, CMS presents a subscription series from October to May, as well as other series dedicated solely to contemporary music and student and family audiences.
