In its 46th season, Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Music Society is one of Canada’s busiest presenters of chamber music concerts with over 60 concerts per year, ranging from solo recitals to octets. Programs range from medieval to contemporary; most feature both classics and recent music. Almost all of our concerts take place at our Music Room, 57 Young St. W., Waterloo, in a private home – it holds a maximum of about 85 people. A superb Steinway piano, good acoustics, a supportive audience and an intimate but informal atmosphere make for great concert experiences. Notable performers have included pianists Janina Fialkowska, Till Fellner, André LaPlante, Sofya Gulyak, and many more; the Penderecki, New Orford, Alcan, and many more quartets; the AYR and Andromeda Trios and many more.
In the coming year, we will have a historic cycle of Beethoven’s string quartets by the Penderecki String Quartet (stretching from December 16, 2019 to December 16, 2020 – Beethoven’s 250th birthday.) The PSQ is in residence at Wilfrid Laurier University. See our continually updated website for details (just google KWCMS.)
