The Chamber Music Society’s long-running radio series featuring 52 programs drawn from recordings of live performances is now carried on stations in forty-four states as well as key locations in Europe, and even New Zealand, Dubai, and the Philippines. The list of participating stations includes four of the top five classical stations in the country, and many more, blanketing the airwaves from coast to coast:

  • The top-ranking WQXR-FM in New York City 
  • The third most listened to station in the country, Chicago’s WFMT-FM
  • KALW-FM in San Francisco, and…
  • The fifth leading station, KTCU-FM in Dallas.

In addition to featuring incomparable performances, the series includes introductions from CMS Artistic Director David Finckel and commentary from the featured musicians. Each program is hosted by WQXR announcer Elliott Forrest and is heard locally on the station Mondays at 10PM. A week after each broadcast, CMS posts the programs online for on-demand listening.
