Chamber Concerts at the Brockton Public Library

Music Matters

Our virtual music series in partnership with the Brockton Public Library and our Local Cultural Councils.

We are pleased to announce Music Matters, our FREE year-long series of topnotch online musical performances to soothe your soul during this season of quarantine when we cannot make live indoor music together.

This 16-concert chamber music series began December 2020 and continued through August 2021, with live-recorded chamber music concerts that premiered on local cable television channels and remain available for viewing online!
