PCMF celebrates 25 years of bringing world-class chamber music to southern Maine, and the farewell season of Founding Artistic Director Jennifer Elowitch, with acclaimed performers from our country’s top ensembles, festivals, and conservatories.

PCMF’s 25 anniversary season concludes with the Maine premiere of “A Forest Unfolding,” a brand-new, totally unique large-scale chamber oratorio inspired by the interconnectivity between and among trees, climate change, nature, and humanity. On the second half of the program, PCMF’s Founder and Artistic Director Jennifer Elowitch “passes the torch” to her successor, violist Melissa Reardon, both featured with friends in Dvoƙák’s soulful “American” Quintet.

Subscriptions and single tickets are available for sale at www.pcmf.org or by calling (800) 320-0257. Single tickets are $32 in advance, $35 at the door, and free for 21 and under. (Valid ID may be required at the door.) Subscribe to all four concerts for just $105.
