The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Series 2018/2019 season begins on November 15, at St. Cecilia with 5 internationally renowned musicians from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York.

For Chamber Music fans, duos and trios will fill the first half of their performance, including Beethoven's variations on Mozart's melody, Schubert's creation for the arpeggione, and Bottesini's virtuoso showpiece for violin and double bass. The artists join forces after intermission to perform Schubert's ”Trout Quintet”, which has garnered a reputation as one of the most popular works in the chamber repertory. A pre-concert artist talk with the visiting musicians begins at 7 p.m. and is open to all ticket holders.

Musicians will include pianist Orion Weiss, violinist Paul Huang, violist Paul Neubauer, cellist Keith Robinson, and double bassist Xavier Foley.
