A season subscription costs $90.00 ($30.00 for students) with one general admission ticket for all six concerts. Seating is first-come, first-served. The subscription form with mailing instructions may be found here, and the brochure detailing the season’s ensembles here.

Because the cost of staging quality performances substantially exceeds the ticket price, we also rely upon generous donations from subscribers and friends.

We do maintain a standby ticket list for each concert, and any seats not yet occupied at 7:50PM are sold to those waiting for admission. In order to be placed on the standby list for a particular concert, access the form here and submit it within 10 days of the concert date. Tickets for individual concerts cost $25.00 ($5.00 for students), payable by cash or check only.

All season subscribers and friends on our mailing list receive a reminder about a week prior to each concert.

Returning 2020-2021 Subscribers

Subscribers for the canceled 2020-2021 season will receive free replacement tickets for the 2021-2022 season, if you so choose. You will receive by mail the new season’s subscription materials in early May. Because we need to know how many tickets are committed and to update changes in contact information, please inform us if you want to carry forward your subscription to the new season by filling out the subscription form and returning it to us. Please send in the form by July 1, 2021, to secure your tickets. You also have the opportunity to increase or decrease the number of tickets or cancel your subscription. With regard to the latter, you may donate the ticket value to the Chamber Music Society of Williamsburg or request a refund.

Non-renewed 2019-2020 Subscribers

Subscribers to the 2019-2020 season who did not renew their subscriptions for the 2020-2021 concerts are still eligible to receive a credit of $30.00 per ticket for the last two canceled concerts in spring 2020. You will receive the new season’s subscription materials in early May. If you choose not to subscribe for 2021-2022, you may donate the credit to the Chamber Music Society of Williamsburg or request a refund. After this year, the credit of $30.00 will disappear.

New Subscribers

We welcome new subscribers to the Chamber Music Society of Williamsburg’s series of concerts. Let us know of your interest by emailing,, with your name and address, and we will mail you subscription materials in May. Because of limitations on seats, we give the previous year’s subscribers the chance to buy tickets before opening the subscription to new people on July 2, 2021, but if you send in your subscription with a check, you will be placed in order received on the wait list. If we cannot fulfill your ticket request, your check will be returned.



CMSW has relied for years on donations from subscribers and other friends of chamber music to help bridge the gap between our concerts’ costs and revenue from ticket sales. The generosity of supporters has enabled the Board to engage high quality ensembles, and we continue to look to the friends of CMSW for contributions to sustain the excellence of the series. Your generous, tax-deductible gifts for the 2021-2022 season will be appreciated and acknowledged.
