Rhode Island Chamber Music Concerts has presented leading artists for more than six decades. Originating in exclusive soirées of the 1930s at the Benefit Street mansion of Anne and John Nicholas Brown, our chamber music series now ranks among the country’s oldest.

The musicians we present are simply the best in the world. Many of today’s hottest international tickets—such as the Jerusalem, Ebène, Modigliani, Pacifica, Brentano, and Takács string quartets – have joined some of the greatest ensembles of our time – like the Smetana, Budapest, Emerson, Guarneri, Juilliard, Kronos, and Tokyo string quartets – in performing for you. The archive section of our website documents this incredible history. These same groups play sold out concerts at Carnegie Hall in New York, the Celebrity Series in Boston, the Philarmonie in Berlin, and Wigmore Hall in London, but we bring them right to your doorstep in a wonderfully intimate setting, and at an unbeatable price. Easy parking and comfortable seats add to your pleasure.

This year we have crafted one of our best lineups ever! Get your tickets now, and join us at McVinney Auditorium to experience the unparalleled artistry and international flair of these much celebrated artists.
