Welcome to Decompression Chamber Music!

Decompression Chamber Music is an informal, entertaining introduction to chamber music. 


Our mission is to make classical chamber music more accessible and enjoyable to all listeners.

Our unique format of performance and dialogue creates a more relaxed atmosphere than traditional concert settings.

We play, engage, and offer insight, giving listeners a deeper understanding of the music, and new listening skills to enhance all their musical experiences.


Each lively one-hour concert centers on one or two chamber music masterpieces, with additional gems from a variety of genres.

Reminder: Musical Architects Haydn and Beethoven



This Monday, November 20th at One Longfellow Square at 7 PM
