The 43rd season of the Smithsonian Chamber Music Society features masterpieces from the late 16th to the mid-20th centuries, played on some of the world’s most highly prized musical instruments.

Kenneth Slowik, SCMS artistic director and recipient of the Smithsonian Distinguished Scholar Award, again curates a series of pre-concert talks one hour prior to each concert.


November’s Schubertiade pairs the haunting sounds of the early clarinet and horn with Aaron Sheehan’s tenor.

Schubert: Sonata in A Major, D574; Der Hirt auf dem Felsen, D965

Smithsonian Chamber Players: Catherine Manson, violin; William Purvis, horn; Eric Hoeprich, clarinet; Kenneth Slowik, fortepiano with Aaron Sheehan, tenor
