Help support our music program for underserved kids!

Starting on May 25, 2017, Worcester Chamber Music Society will be auctioning off a number of fun and unique items to bid on to raise money for Neighborhood Strings.


Neighborhood Strings is a community-based program of the Worcester Chamber Music Society (WCMS) that offers free music lessons in violin, viola and cello to youth from Worcester’s Downtown and Main South neighborhoods. Our acclaimed program provides affordable, high-quality arts education, fosters family involvement, and is open and accessible to underserved youth. Youth learn to make music together with musicians and friends from the WCMS. In the process, they discover a creative outlet that hones life skills like discipline, cooperation, imagination, and leadership. The focus is not just on the child as a musician, but the child as a citizen and a contributing member of society.
