"Timeless Music, Impeccably Performed."

We are a nonprofit organization offering performances of the world's most enduring and beautiful music played by its most acclaimed virtuosos. We'll bring you exquisite music and treat your senses to the unmatched sound of a Stradivarius violin, a Brahms' Quintet or a Tchaikovsky love song.

Chamber music is the most intimate and exciting of the classical music forms. Hear how only a handful of artists can paint a canvass of sound that can completely fill the auditorium or hush to the quietness of a falling leaf.


Mission Statement

Chamber Music International is a nonprofit arts organization that offers exceptional classical music through performances and musical education programs in Richardson and the Dallas Metroplex. The mission of Chamber Music International is to: (A) present Chamber Music concerts on the highest artistic level to a broad spectrum of audiences; (B) enhance the Richardson and Dallas area's reputation for musical excellence; (C) provide opportunities for youth to perform and learn about Chamber Music; and (D) provide broader access to audiences throughout metropolitan North Texas.


"A Once-in-a-lifetime Experience Everytime!"

Chamber Music International is a nonprofit, volunteer-centered organization that provides you the opportunity to hear the world's most beautiful chamber music. There are many opportunities for you to help us. Volunteers are always welcome.

Ticket sales do not cover our expenses. We rely on contributions, which are tax deductible for most of our operating budget and enthusiastically acknowledge our generous patrons. Look for an announcement of our Fund-raising Gala. It will be a delightful musical event, open to all. Advertisers in our program guide will reach a broad audience that appreciates quality and understands the important role that good corporate citizens play in maintaining the cultural life of our community. For more information on how to help, please contact us.
