MV Chamber Music Society
The Community Center proudly presents the forty-sixth season of concerts by the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber Music Society. In 1971, the Montagnana Trio performed five impromptu summer concerts at the Chilmark Community Center. The audience sat on the floor, and the piano was a borrowed Steinway upright. From these inauspicious beginnings the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber Music Society has grown into an important multi-faceted part of the annual cultural landscape of Martha’s Vineyard.
In addition to the summer concert series featuring world-class guest artists, the MVCMS performs concerts in the off-season, provides educational opportunities for young Island musicians, gives scholarship support to Island students for private lessons, supplies string instruments at a low rental rate or free for Island children, and awards a merit scholarship for the graduating senior who has shown outstanding talent in the field of music.
This summer the MVCMS, under the artistic direction of Delores Stevens, will present a series of five Tuesday night concerts at the Community Center. The same concert is also staged at the Whaling Church in Edgartown on Monday evenings.
