    Celebrating our 44th season of providing musical opportunities and enjoyment to the community!
    The Chamber Music Society of Oregon is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is devoted to promoting musical opportunities for persons of all ages. Our flagship performing ensemble, the Oregon Sinfonietta, is a full symphony orchestra of community musicians, conducted by Dr. Donald L. Appert, that presents a series of four free concerts each season. The Oregon Sinfonietta traditionally offers a superb selection of the classical music repertoire, as well as presenting outstanding young musicians, winners of the yearly CMSO Concerto Competition in performances of full concertos, and performances by world-class professional soloists.
    Congratulations to the winners of the 2015 2016 CMSO Concerto Competition: cellist Harry Kim, trumpeter Kristoffer Parker, and pianist Jonathan Liao. The 2016 2017 season will have performances of Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 and Flute Concerto No. 1, in addition to MacDowell's Piano Concerto No. 2. The winners of the Concerto Competition each receive a $1,000.00 honorarium, made possible with the addition of a generous donation by the Jerry and Donna Smith Family Foundation. Please see the Concerto Competition page for information about the 2017 2018 competition.
    We are pleased to announce the 2016 2017 season of the Oregon Sinfonietta. We look forward to your joining us at these exciting concerts. Details can be found on the Concerts page. This past season's collaboration with world-renowned violist Brett Deubner for the premiere of Dr. Appert's Concerto for Viola and Orchestra was one of the many highlights of the season. This season is sure to have many more memorable moments and highlights.
