The Asheville Chamber Music Series will present The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center on Friday, Feb. 23 at 8 p.m. The concert welcomes the celebrated chamber ensemble of one of the most recognized presenters of chamber music in the nation and will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville, 1 Edwin Place in Asheville.

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center presents chamber music of every instrumentation, style, and historical period in its extensive concert season in New York, its national tours, and its many recordings and national radio broadcasts. In Asheville, the ensemble will be performing music from Vienna to Hollywood, as well as a program featuring music of Schubert and classical film composer Korngold.

“If you love the music of Schubert, this is the concert for you," said Nathan Shirley, ACMS administrative assistant. "The music on this program will focus on two romantic figures of Vienna - Schubert who helped forge the style, and Korngold who, due to the rise of the Nazi regime, brought his late romantic concert music to the silver screen in Hollywood.”

The Feb. 23 program will include:

  • Schubert: Fantasie, F minor, Piano 4 Hands, D. 940, Op. 103
  • Schubert: Fantasie, C major for Violin and Piano, D. 934, Op. 159
  • Korngold: Suite for Piano Left Hand, Two Violins, and Cello, Op. 23

Tickets are $38 general admission. Youth under 25 are admitted free. To purchase tickets or for more, visit, call (828) 575-7427 or email

For well over half a century the Asheville Chamber Music Series has brought world-renowned chamber artists to the city.  As one of the nation’s oldest continuous performing chamber music organizations, it has been recognized for its programs and for its education component through a collaboration with the strings program of the Asheville Buncombe Schools and other cultural partners in the community, including the Asheville Symphony Youth Orchestra.
