Intimate chamber concerts enjoyed from your home

Throughout the 2021 season, concert highlights of the Chamber Music Series at the Dock Street Theatre will be available to view on our YouTube channel, website, and social media platforms. Each of the 11 programs will be video-recorded, with performance highlights and artist introductions posted for streaming at 5:00pm EDT after the in-person concerts, beginning May 29. The videos will be available through June 18. Videos will be roughly 15 to 20 minutes in length and feature two to three concert segments from the 11 programs, including the exciting new works by 2021 composer-in-residence Jessica Meyer, Osvaldo Golijov (in residence in 1998, 2002, 2011, and 2016), and Siegfried Thiele.

The videos will accompany South Carolina Public Radio’s broadcasts of the full-length concerts. The Radio’s “Sonatas and Soundscapes” program—hosted by Bradley Fuller—has aired concerts from Spoleto’s Chamber Music Series for 40 years. Broadcasts of full concerts from the 2021 season program begin Friday, June 4, with concerts airing weekdays at 11:00am EDT. Listeners can stream the complete radio broadcasts online at southcarolinapublicradio.org or through smart speakers. Live in South Carolina? Check your local listings here.
