The Smithsonian Chamber Music Society celebrates its 38th season with musical masterpieces from the Elizabethan period to late 19th century. This is part of a six-concert series offered on Saturdays.

One hour prior to each program Kenneth Slowik, SCMS artistic director, continues his popular pre-concert lectures, shedding light on the lives and times of the featured composers and their glorious music.

The season concludes in mid-May with music from Shakespeare’s time. The program is built around the sensuous sounds of the broken consort, which includes a woodwind, two bowed stringed instruments, the gut-strung lute, and the wire-strung cittern and bandora.
