2021 - 2022 Concert Schedule
All concerts are Sundays at 4:00 pm at the Howland Cultural Center

Howland has been one of our favorite places to perform over the years; we love the beautiful space, of course, but developing a relationship with your warm, enthusiastic audience has been a truly special experience for us.

         — Daedalus Quartet

Howland Chamber Music Circle is a world-class concert series that makes it possible to experience the highest quality music making in a welcoming, open atmosphere.

Due to the unpredictable nature of the global pandemic, it is critical that we be as nimble as possible in our ticket sales should conditions change.

To that end, tickets to each concert will go on sale one month prior to that concert's date. There will be no subscription sales this season.

We are taking the following steps toward maintaining a safe environment during our concerts
  • Proof of COVID vaccination and a picture ID must be shown prior to entry
  • Masks must be worn while indoors
  • Audience size will be reduced by half
  • There will be no intermission
  • The after-concert reception will be replaced with a Q&A with the musicians from the stage
In addition to the live performances, it is our goal to record each concert and offer an on-demand streaming option at a later date for those who would prefer to enjoy the performances in that fashion. This option will be re-evaluated during the season as we gauge its popularity and effectiveness.

All of these policies are subject to change as the season unfolds. There is nothing more paramount than the safety of our patrons, musicians, and staff.


Gift the gift of music! Electronic gift cards are now available for purchase. Recipients can use their unique code to purchase tickets to future concerts.
