Greetings! I'm Michael Reynolds, artistic director of the Montana Chamber Music Society (MCMS). Our mission is to present chamber music concerts throughout Montana – great chamber music under the Big Sky!

Under the auspices of MCMS, we began of our 11th season – and the 31st annual Montana Chamber Music Festival in July 2019. All the MCMS performances are in MSU's acoustically excellent Reynolds Recital Hall (in Howard Hall).

 

The five-concert MCMS season began on July 11 with works by Vivaldi, Brahms, and Piazzolla. On September 13, I will performed Bach's Gamba Sonatas and Vivaldi's Cello Sonatas with regular guest pianist Michele Levin. March 12 and 14 the Muir Quartet performs quartets from Haydn to Bartok and Berg.  April 4 concludes the season with piano trios performed by Philip Aaberg, Angella Ahn, and Sara Stalnaker.

 

Our annual summer Montana Chamber Music Festival, which was the week of July 8-14, included two private home concerts, our annual performance in Reynolds Hall on July 11, and performances in the historic Trinity Episcopal Church in Ennis (July 12), and St. Timothy's Chapel in Georgetown Lake (July 14).

 

We hope to see you at our concerts this and next season!
