Dear Friends and Patrons,
It’s a sincere honor and pleasure to introduce myself as the new board president of the Black Hills Chamber Music Society.
Our 1st full season of concerts is truly exciting. We have prepared something for everyone. An exceptional string quartet, an organ recital, solo piano performance, and a brass quintet. On November 20, we will present one of the most exciting young violinists, Maya Anjali Buchanan, from Rapid City. We're titling the concert, "Home for the Holidays."
Justine and I have been working together for many years as our organizations, the Chamber Music Festival of the Black Hills and the Black Hills Chamber Music Society have the same goals of presenting the highest of caliber chamber music concerts for the community of the Black Hills.
Established in 1964
Dedicated to the idea of creating a chamber music society, our founders designed the structure for what is now known as Black Hills Chamber Music Society. For over 58 years we have been bringing beautiful chamber music to our community through Concerts, Community Outreach and Collaborations.
We are thrilled to present an exceptional lineup of the top professional chamber soloists and ensembles directly to the Black Hills.
The purpose of the Black Hills Chamber Music Society (BHCMS) is to promote and increase our community's understanding and appreciation of Chamber Music by presenting activities and performances. The BHCMS provides musical entertainment and informative musical performances/activities for all citizens in the Rapid City area, including those who might not otherwise have artistic or cultural opportunities. The Board of Volunteers of the BHCMS offers a five-concert chamber music series involving local, national and international artists and also provides several successful outreach projects. The music sponsored reflects diversity and balance from all musical eras, group size (solo to chamber) and instrumentation. The projects sponsored benefit people of all ages, race, gender and socio-economic status. The BHCMS advocates for the arts as performances of quality chamber music are provided in every elementary school in the Rapid City school system, many elderly care centers, the Black Hills Children's Home and the general public through our Annual five-concert season.
