Kammerwerke is a chamber music society under the direction of Alan Pearlmutter, bringing professional musicians together to read, rehearse, and perform both known and lesser known musical works. Chamber music encompasses everything from a chamber orchestra of thirty players to small groups of winds or winds and strings. Known musical works are always enjoyable for musicians and audiences alike. The exploration of lesser known classical music serves the multiple purposes of educating seasoned musicians, sustaining worthy music that is either rarely or never performed, and educating audiences in the unfamiliar.


"Music is a basic need of human survival. Music is one of the ways we make sense of things, a way to express feelings when we have no words, a way to understand things with our hearts when we cannot grasp them with our minds…If there is a future wave of wellness, of harmony, of peace, an end to war,….it will come from the artists."

Karl Paulnack, Director of the Music Division, Boston Conservatory, from We Need Music to Survive, in The Christian Science Monitor, June 7, 2009.
