We’re celebrating CONTEXT’s 25th Season with BEGINNINGS—music that blazed new paths, started careers, and changed history!

Since our own beginning in 1995, CONTEXT’s mission has been to present the most imaginative and engaging chamber music from an astounding range of styles and eras. Every concert brings to life musical masterworks, along with intriguing discoveries. CONTEXT’s musicians are esteemed performers from across the nation, chosen for their particular mastery of each program’s repertoire. Each Sunday-afternoon concert includes concise, engaging comments to enliven your pleasure in the music, in an intimate hall of superior acoustics, where you’ll be close to the musicians.

A CONTEXT concert is a journey in a magic time machine. Our renowned collection of historical pianos, with string and wind instruments appropriate for each era, let you hear the kinds of sounds and effects that the composers’ first audiences heard. Even familiar pieces are revealed in a new spirit and fresh beauty.

Our concerts usually sell out. Order your subscription today, and join us for another season of Context’s extraordinary musical explorations.
