Founded in the spring of 2013, the Chamber Music Society of San Francisco was born out of a collective desire to perform the great chamber music repertoire.  Dedicated to bringing these masterworks to diverse audiences, CMS of SF is passionate about concertizing in intimate settings, creating close connections between performers and listeners, and cultivating a relationship between music and audiences that extends far beyond the perimeter of the concert hall.

Founding members Natasha Makhijani, Jory Fankuchen, Clio Tilton and Samsun van Loon came together through their mutual love of the late Beethoven String Quartets, forming a core to collaborate with beloved Bay Area musicians as guest artists.

This Osher Inside Out Concert is made possible by the Grants for the Arts, the Bernard Osher Foundation, Noe Valley Voice, and the Mervyn L. Brenner Foundation. Additional support generously provided by Cliche Noe Retail Consulting.
