Fri. Apr. 8 at 10 p.m. on WKAR-HD 23.1 & STREAMING | The Chamber Music Society returns home for its first concert since the beginning of the pandemic.

More about Chamber Music Society Returns:
"Chamber Music Society Returns" captures the exciting yet daunting process of CMS's return to its home, Alice Tully Hall, after a year and a half away. CMS brings us inside the planning and execution of the celebratory first concert back, through all the obstacles involved with mounting a tour in these fraught times, and finally takes us to the culmination of the fall season in the beloved annual tradition of Bach's Brandenburg Concertos. The return of live chamber music to Lincoln Center is a story of many trials ultimately overcome through resilience and hope.
