As we enter our 2020-2021 season, we find that we are still adjusting our plans to address the changing restrictions and requirements necessary to keep our patrons and musicians safe. We are currently unable to provide you with a definitive season, but we will do our best to keep you apprised of our updated plans through email and on our website and social media. If we are forced to make changes, or if at the time of a concert you don’t feel comfortable attending, we will gladly provide you with a refund or exchange. Until we can safely meet again in the concert hall, we hope that you find enjoyment from our virtual performances and public offerings. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

The Southcoast Chamber Music Series (SCCMS) was formed to present high quality classical chamber music for the communities of Southeastern MA. Each program presents an engaging array of styles, timbres, and artists in lively acoustic environments throughout the Southcoast.

Our first concert of the season will be in conjunction with the Z Drive-In Series on Sunday, October 18, 3:00pm.

Innovative Educational Programs

Our educational programs serve over 8,000 children a year, and we are recognized nationally for our innovative approach and high impact. We all know of the documented benefits of children learning music, and we firmly believe that by introducing classical music to a new generation of students through our programs, we are helping them to make critical connections between music and their everyday lives, making their NBSO experience enriching on multiple levels. 

This fall, students in dozens of area schools will embark on a journey of discovery with NBSO Education Director Terry Wolkowicz, exploring “Gravity in Space and Sound” in our Learning in Concert program. Watch the brief video to the left, then click below to explore further.
