""Music is the silence between the notes."
Since its debut in 1998, the Lyric Chamber Music Society of New York has presented chamber music and cutting-edge repertoire in an intimate salon setting---as it was intended to be heard. We cater to music lovers and students in the tri-state area. Our concerts have been described as a "quintessential upper east side townhouse experience. "
The unique Lyric experience offers up close exposure to rising stars, as well as Concert Masters and Principal Players from leading orchestras, interpreting masterpieces of chamber music. The Lyric’s programming combines classic chamber music works, rarely performed compositions, and innovative contemporary pieces.
The Lyric discovers, nurtures and introduces up-coming talent from around the world, giving an opportunity to perform with eminent musicians for a audience, be reviewed by the national press, and to be broadcast on radio stations across the country.
To help ensure tomorrow’s audience for classical music, The Lyric is actively involved in creating music education and community engagement programs in the metro area. We are committed to broaden this initiative by sending artists to under served schools, both with and without music programs.
