The Quinte Society for Chamber music is regional volunteer based organization working to make performances of classical music by highly  accomplished concert artists  accessible to all in our rural communities.  QSCM is  a registered Canadian Charity.  

Founded in 2015 with the mission of making classical music accessible to all, QSCM  has established a reputation for excellence in performance that leaves all  who love classical music wowed, and those listening for the first time calling out for more. 

 Committed to developing a rural audience for classical music in the Quinte region QSCM brings the best classical musicians to perform in the  stunning acoustic   of St. Paul's United Church in Stirling and other  intimate venues in our rural communities that allow everyone to get up close and personal with classical music at its best.  

Many  people in rural Ontario have never heard a professional performance of classical music. Others are intimidated by the sophisticated image as well as the expense of attending live and professional classical music  events.  The intimacy and versatility of chamber music makes it the ideal vehicle for attracting people who have never thought about listening to  classical music  much less going to a concert. 

QSCM presents performances of chamber music by highly accomplished  and exceptional  professional musicians. We bring the music to the people   in  local venues where  everyone in the community already feels comfortable.  Our events are audience-friendly and  enhanced with many opportunities to learn more about classical music .  Our musicians  interact with  the audience  from the stage and  in  post-performance social events.  

QSCM  fund-raises vigorously to keep ticket prices low  so affordable for all.  Attending a QSCM performance  costs less than a night at the movies!   QSCM members are entitled to $5 off 1 regularly priced  ticket per membership for each full priced concert.   Most of our outreach events are free of charge. 

Since our founding season QSCM has offered many outstanding events featuring a diverse range of ensembles and repertoire.  Incorporated in 2017  as a Ontario not-for-profit, in 2018 we became a registered Canadian Charity.  Tax receipts are issued for donations over $10.00.  

Artistic Director Violinist Sebastian Sallans and Resident Pianist  Dr. Todd Yaniw are responsible for making professional decisions regarding artistic programming.  QSCM  is  managed by a board of directors  drawn from our membership. The work of our organization is  under taken  entirely by volunteers.
