music is a more potent instrument than any other for education, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul.

The Dallas Chamber Music Society has a proud history of educational outreach in Dallas and throughout North Texas. Students receive free tickets to our concerts, and our visiting ensembles regularly give masterclasses at Southern Methodist University, Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing Arts, and other schools and universities.

We offer paid internships to provide undergraduate and graduate students experience in arts administration. In 2020, we hosted the Chicago-based Spektral Quartet for a week-long residency, during which the quartet performed concerts and delivered masterclasses for individual instrumentalists, chamber ensembles, and student composers at the University of North Texas, the University of Texas at Dallas, and SMU


Partnership with the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture

In 2020, we expanded our offerings by partnering with the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture to present courses focused on chamber music. Designed for lifelong learners and taught by local experts such as Dr. Peter Kupfer (Southern Methodist University), these courses culminate in a concert on our subscription series.

This season’s course is focused on the life and music of Beethoven in honor of his 250th birthday and features the ATOS Trio in concert.

Course dates, time and location: Thursdays, October 29, November 5 and 12 from 6:30-8:30PM. Online video conferencing.

Concert date, time and location: Monday, November 16 at 7:30PM, live in Caruth Auditorium at SMU and streamed.
