St. Cecilia Chamber Music Society

Beauty, Passion, Variety!

St. Cecilia is the only musical organization in Houston that gives each of its core musicians complete freedom in choosing the musical selections and the musicians to perform in that concert. The results? Varied and fascinating programming; happy, collegial musicians; delighted audiences.

Read why John Lienhard thinks our St. Cecilia concerts are outstanding:
“We can hear many fine traveling ensembles with programs crafted to appeal widely.  But here is something different, something unique:  St. Cecilia Chamber Music Society identifies leading musicians of the Houston artistic megatropolis and says to them, ‘Choose your own players and singers.  Choose your own music.’  The result is the quality and passion of wholly invested musicians, combined with daring programming that we otherwise never get to hear.  SCCMS provides us with a wonderfully fresh experience.”

Pianist and core musician Rodney Waters, says:
“We, the musicians, want to thank St. Cecilia – because otherwise, we would not have the opportunity to perform these wonderful concerts. I want to say that it’s a rare opportunity for musicians to have such incredible freedom and support from a presenting organization – but it’s not just rare, it’s totally unique!  I’ve never heard of another series like it, and I feel fortunate to have been a part of St. Cecilia for so many years.”
