There is big news for classical, chamber music fans in West Michigan.

St. Cecilia Music Center just announced it’s partnering with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, New York City.  That’s big news.

The Chamber Music Society will program the local chamber music series
as David Finckel and Wu Han, co-directors at Lincoln Center become artistic directors of the St. Cecilia Chamber Music Series beginning this fall.

This association will really open the doors for St. Cecilia to attract the finest chamber music artists and ensembles to Grand Rapids.

St. Cecilia Executive Director, Cathy Holbrook said “we’ll have the most prestigious chamber music organization in the country and two of the most important people in chamber music today as our artistic directors, bringing fresh, unique chamber music programs to St. Cecilia Music Center.”

In a prepared statement, Finckel and Han said that The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center feels a natural connection with St. Cecilia Music Center.

“Both organizations were founded by people passionately committed to the idea of homes for great music in their communities,” Finckel and Han said. “CMS is young compared to St. Cecilia, and we are thrilled and honored to be partnering with an institution that has contributed so sincerely, for so long, to the culture of its city.”

The married couple were appointed in 2004 as artistic directors of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, one of 11 constituent member organizations of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the largest performing arts complex in the world.

The New York Philharmonic, New York City Ballet, Lincoln Center Theater and The Metropolitan Opera all are part of Lincoln Center, whose Chamber Music Society is in residence in Alice Tully Hall.
