2015-2016 - Our 37th Concert Season   

The concert series planned for next season includes a marvelous and diverse group of artists, some award winning new groups and some more established musicians.
     We open on October 4th with Helena Baillie and Babette Hierholzer. Helena was hailed by The Strad magazine for her ‘brilliance and poignance’, and stands apart for her ease on both violin and viola. Accompanied by pianist Babette Hierholzer, renowned international favorite, the concert should be remarkable.
     This year’s free family concert will be “Sleeping Beauty” on November 8th.
     November 22nd brings The Brooklyn Rider String Quartet. Hailed as “the future of chamber music” (Strings), The innovative quartet presents performances that draw rave reviews from the classical world and rock critics alike. They are among the “hottest” of the new, young chamber groups.
     On January 17th we continue with our tradition of presenting a vocal performance. We are fortunate to have 3 rising stars perform for us: Avery Amereau, mezzo-soprano, Christine Price, soprano, accompanied by pianist Sophia Munoz.
     March 13th we will present the award winning Weiss Kaplan Stumpf Trio. They have been hailed by The New York Times as “three strong voices, locked in sequence.”
     On April 10th our final concert of the season will be The Alexander String Quartet. The New York Times calls the ASQ “An unusually fine group-musically, technically, in just about any way one wants to view it.”

Tickets for the RCMS concerts can be purchased online until the day before the concert. On the day of the concert you can purchase the tickets only at the door 1 hour before the concert.

Welcome to the season...

Welcome letter from
Babette Hierholzer
Artistic Director

Our final concert of the 2014-2015 season ended with a 10 minute standing ovation for the Enso String Quartet and Peter Wiley. It was a fabulous concert as were the four that preceded it.
      We had many compliments about the quality and diversity of the music presented.
     Our free family concert, “Pinocchio” was a great hit with local families and our several Outreach Programs at area nursing homes continued to be well received. It was delightful to see young children experiment-
ing with percussion instruments at the February children’s concert held in the Morton Library. The March Student Competition for talented high school musicians was a great success.

Unless otherwise indicated, concerts are presented in Rhinebeck at The Church of the Messiah, an 1897 Gothic edifice with superb acoustics.

 This season concerts begin at 3:00pm, followed by a reception for the artists.
