About Us

Welcome to the HLS Chamber Music Society.

If you’re interested in playing in a small ensemble this semester, then fill out our matching questionnaire by January 28th.

We are a network of musicians at HLS and in the Harvard community. We aim to create a community of music-loving people and to provide opportunities for people to maintain their musical interests amidst the rigors of school. We are here as a resource for you, to help you find other musicians, to put you in contact with people and groups seeking musicians, and to inform you of musical events that may be of interest to you. We regularly organize recitals and other events featuring musicians from HLS and the Harvard community. All musicians at HLS, the Harvard community, and beyond are welcome to join.

One of our main efforts is to bring together musicians for informal music-making and/or performance in smaller ensembles. Each semester, we assign chamber music groups according to self-rated playing levels for those musicians who request an assignment. The time commitment and choice of repertoire are flexible and up to the members of each group. This is a low-key way to get to know other people and to resuscitate your instrument every now and then.

We also maintain a directory of musicians and a mailing list, which you may use to seek other musicians and post announcements of your own.

Feel free to contact us with any questions about musical life at HLS. We look forward to meeting you!
