What we're about
Welcome! Thanks for your interest in the Classical Musicians of Metro DC (CM-MDC) Meetup Group, sponsored by the DC Concert Orchestra Society (DCCOS). DCCOS has 600 members and sponsors three program tracks for DC area musicians. If you are just interested in casual chamber music gatherings, read on. If you are interested in more serious chamber music and orchestra participation opportunities, including public performance, please visit www.dccos.org/join
Classical Musicians of Metro DC is your home for relaxed, non-competitive performance – mostly private – of chamber music for fun and enjoyment. Musicians only (no music appreciaters please) at all levels, except beginner, are welcome.
While good music is the goal, the emphasis here is on fun and enjoyment! Many who were reticent to attend, or thought they might just "sit and listen" found themselves playing at their first meeting. Nerves and feeling intimidated can be left at the doorstep. We're a collegial, congenial, non-competitive group; criticism and attitude are not welcome; we appreciate everyone's best effort.
