Buffalo Chamber Music Society


The Outreach Program

In its continuing commitment to education, the Buffalo Chamber Music Society engages available ensembles or recitalists from the series to perform in area schools in order to provide students the unique opportunity of hearing world-renowned musicians in an informal setting. These visits may include master classes, mini-recitals and question and answer periods. This outreach program, now in its 25th year, has resulted in over 93 performances in 38 different schools and is provided to students free of charge.
