"An Evening of the Arts" with CMS: Baroque Concert + Post-Concert Reception!

It’s time for the Chamber Music Society’s (CMS) annual baroque concert and post-concert reception!

Once again, please join us and our friends at CMS during the December holiday month to hear a selection of rarely performed baroque pieces by some of the most well-known composers of the period.  

CMS has offered us generously discounted tickets for this very special evening, a concert followed by a cocktail reception at the Rose Studio.  The reception this year will include an art exhibit curated by KiptonArt and will be sponsored by The New York Observer.  These receptions are a lot of fun and a great opportunity to meet and mingle with other members of our group and other young chamber music enthusiasts. As always, I hope many of you will attend and then stop by the reception afterwards for eats, a beer or three, and to meet other chamber music enthusiasts in a fun setting.

NOTE:  CMS will be making 50 tickets (concert & reception) available for our group this year. Accordingly, if you want to attend, then please purchase your ticket from CMS as soon as possible. First come, first served. RSVPing ON THE EVENT PAGE ALONE DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOU A TICKET.

Call CMS at[masked]-5788.  Provide your name, indicate that you’re a member of the Chamber Music Meetup and that you'd like to purchase a discounted ticket for the December 9 baroque concert.


Before the Concert:

You Have Your Ticket: Enter the MAIN ENTRANCE through the revolving doors on 65th & Broadway. I'll be there at 7:00PM, standing to the LEFT of the revolving doors along the glass wall facing LincolnCenter.

You Need to Pick Up Your Ticket: Use the entrance a little further up, to the right of the lobby cafe, close to66th Street. You'll see the box office from outside. Pick up your tix, then come meet us inside the main entrance.

At 7:20PM, we'll go to our seats. If you arrive late or are stuck in line waiting to pick up tix, then just go to your seat and meet us after the concert. Performance begins at 7:30PM.

After the Concert:

We’ll meet BRIEFLY back in the lobby, and then walk over to the Rose Studio for the reception.  If you’re delayed getting out of the hall and/or can’t find us, don't worry -- please just go directly to the Rose Studio. WE WILL BE THERE!

The studio is located on the 10th Fl. of the RoseBuilding. This building is attached to the Walter Reade Theater just down the block on 65th. Walk towards Amsterdan, past Julliard's entrance.  You will see a stairwell to your right. When you get to the top, theRoseBuildingentrance will be in front of you. 

Alternatively, you can walk a little past the stairwell to the street-level escalator.  If you opt for the escalator, turn left when you get to the top and theRoseBuildingentrance will be directly in front of you.

164 West 65th Street, 10th Floor (closer to Amsterdam
New York, NY10023

Printed directions to the Rose Studio will be available at the patron window prior to the concert, and at the CMS shop in the lobby during and after the performance.

See you there!

    Mary organized a great evening. Concert was superb, nice seats together with group, reception was wonderful. Would have liked to have met more of the performers. Excellent baroque pieces, and can't wait until next year's event and look forward to more baroque era recitals.

    I may not be able to attend tonight. Won't know until late in the afternoon. If you need a ticket, you should get in touch with me, just in case.

    Howard is correct -- you must have purchased the Chamber Music Meetup discounted ticket in order to have your name added to the Chamber Music Meetup list for the reception. A ticket purchased outisde the Meetup discount will NOT admit you in to the reception.

    I called about tickets as well. Availability for the concert is NOT the same as guest list for the after party. Wonder if I could join in on that as someone's "plus one" guest... Anyone?

  • Franklin

    I got a ticket this morning, so I'll be attending.

    December 5, 2011

  • Libby

    I got a call this morning that a ticket was available--probably more than one, so if you did as I did you can probably get a ticket--so I will be coming after all.

    I called the number listed in the Meetup announcement and the person took my name and contact info, saying that if more tickets were released I'd be notified. Here's hoping...
