The 46th season of the Smithsonian Chamber Music Society features musical masterpieces from the late 16th century to the cusp of the 21st, played on some of the world’s most highly prized musical instruments. Veteran musicians of the Society are joined in several of the programs by emerging artists during this 7-concert series held on Sundays. The season presents three chamber program dyads, plus a chamber orchestra concert. The Smithsonian Consort of Viols makes two appearances.

Concert Program

This spring program features English consort music by Orlando Gibbons and Henry Purcell, whose 1680 fantazias provide a fitting capstone to a venerable tradition. Note this program does not include a pre-concert lecture.
