The Sierra Chamber Society  proudly invites you to subscribe to its 2021-22 (34th) concert season. We return to Grace Presbyterian Church, 2100 Tice Valley Blvd, Walnut Creek, across from the old Jewish Community Center, just around the corner from Rossmoor.

You can look forward to both familiar and surprising works. In its 34th season,  The Sierra Chamber Society  welcomes back our enduring friends from the San Francisco Symphony,  and distinguished guests, including our friends, the acclaimed  Telegraph String Quartet, winners of the 2016 International Naumburg competition, and soprano soloist  Abigail Fischer.

The SCS continues to offer  FLEX TICKETS, i.e.  although tickets will be dated as usual, you will be able to use  any  number of  this season’s  tickets at  any  concert  this season.   Use them one at a time, all at one performance, or in any combination.     If you are unable to attend, giving your tickets to friends is a wonderful way to share your enthusiasm for the Sierra Chamber Society.

Season Subscribers enjoy a substantial discount.    In addition, the SCS  relies on  SEASON SUBSCRIBERS  to sustain it through each season.   These have been hard times.   Our coffers are low and seating is limited by Covid regulations.   We hope that you’ll be a contributor as we pick up the pieces and resume   our 4th  decade in the chamber music business!

Plan to attend delightful  preconcert talks  at 2 PM before each program featuring noted musicologist Steven Lowe, program annotator for the Seattle Symphony.

Please allow me to stress that  DONATIONS  are our life€™s blood, allowing for seasonal programming and assuring our future.   In addition to making a personal donation, if your employer has a  matching gift  program, your gift could be doubled.  

Finally, you can help to ensure the Sierra Chamber Society€™s Legacy by making us a part of your  estate planning.   If you would like to know more about  any of  these options, please inquire at   A board member will contact you
