Chamber Music Society Returns to Princeton

MUSICAL FAMILIES: “CMS Kids: Exploring Dvorák” is the final family program this season for Princeton University Concerts. Two sessions are curated for kids ages 3-6 and their families at the Lewis Center.

Princeton University Concerts (PUC) welcomes The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center back to Princeton for the final family program of the 2022-23 season on Saturday, May 20, at 1 and 3 p.m. “CMS Kids: Exploring Dvorák” is curated for kids ages 3-6 and their families. Performances will take place in the Lee Rehearsal Room at the Lewis Arts Complex.

Host Rami Vamos and the professional musicians of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center will guide audiences in an exploration of the theme of identity through Antonín Dvorák’s Quartet in E-flat Major for Piano, Violin, Viola, and Cello, Op. 87. This inclusive concert experience is adapted for neurodiverse audiences, including children with autism or other special needs. The performance is presented in a judgment-free environment, and is less formal and more supportive of sensory, communication, movement, and learning needs.

“Accessibility of all kinds has been at the core of PUC’s mission from our inception, and I am so grateful to partner with The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center to bring a program friendly to neurodiverse audiences,” says PUC Director Marna Seltzer. “With the launch of our Healing with Music series this season it has become ever more apparent that music plays an absolutely essential role in all of our lives — and I believe that introducing kids to its power from a young age can be life changing.”

Tickets are $5 for children and $10 for adults. Visit puc.princeton.edu, or call (609) 258-9220.
