Introducing Chamber Music Maryland

Candlelight Concert Society has changed its name to Chamber Music Maryland

For more than 50 years Candlelight Concert Society has played an instrumental part in making central Maryland a vibrant and thriving cultural destination. Since 1972, the organization has enabled music lovers of all ages to get up close to the world’s best musical artists in venues that have been accessible and affordable. It’s introduced children and students to the joys of music, through outreach concerts in our schools, and it’s brought music closer to those with reduced mobility by presenting artists in person at senior living communities and health facilities.

In recent years, the nonprofit has expanded its programming to more Marylanders, adding an annual free-for-all concert at the Horowitz Center at Howard Community College in Howard County, a stunning piano series in Baltimore County at UMBC’s Linehan Hall, and most recently, a new three-concert series at the historic Peale Museum in the heart of Baltimore City.

As the programming has grown to reach more communities around our state, it has become more clear that a new identity was needed to reflect the expanded audience. So for its next season, the organization has announced a big change that will shape its next 50 years. Candlelight Concert Society will rebrand to Chamber Music Maryland!

Even though the name and logo are changing, the commitment to bringing the world’s best musical artists home for Howard County families will not change. In fact, the upcoming 2024-25 season, the first as Chamber Music Maryland, is expected to be the biggest and most exciting season ever. The schedule includes eight concerts in Howard County. More information on the 2024-25 season can be found here.
