About the Ticket Supplier: Berkeley Chamber Performances

Berkeley Chamber Performances is a nonprofit presenting organization for chamber music in the East Bay. Founded in 1993, it presents mostly, but not exclusively, local ensembles and attempts to press the boundaries of "chamber music" by including in each five-concert season jazz, ethnic, multi-disciplinary, commissioned or first performance presentations. Concerts take place Tuesday evenings at 8 p.m. in the historic Berkeley City Club. Following each performance audience members can attend our Meet-the-Performers reception to connect with the artists. Berkeley Chamber Performances loves expanding its audience to those generally not attending chamber music concerts.
