The Vancouver Chamber Music Society (VCMS) is one of the leading concert presenters in the Lower Mainland featuring world-renowned artists in local communities. We invite some of Canada’s best musical talents together with internationally acclaimed artists to present unforgettable musical experiences to the public. From intimate recitals to dynamic chamber ensembles, VCMS offers a full array of chamber music performances by artists of the highest caliber at the most affordable rates in Western Canada.
Founded in 2012 as Bridge Musicians International until early 2016, Artistic Director Kevin Park presented concerts in the North Shore to provide emerging musicians opportunities to collaborate with top international artists. A survey and market analysis showing the reluctance of many audience members to drive to downtown Vancouver sparked the expansion to the communities of Delta, New Westminster, and Coquitlam as well as the North Shore. VCMS is a registered charitable organization and non-profit society.
