Second City Chamber Series

The Second City Chamber Series is dedicated to the performance of chamber music masterworks, both old and new. Founded by pianists Willa and William Doppmann in Tacoma, Washington in 1977, the Series is now in its thirty-sixth season of outstanding music making.

Each year, the Series brings together many of the Northwest’s finest musicians to perform interesting, challenging and entertaining chamber music in an artfully assembled series of programs for an ever-expanding Puget Sound audience. Through the music, thoughtful program notes, and gracious and intimate settings, Second City Chamber Series seeks both to enrich and delight music lovers of all ages.

Led by Artistic Director Svend Rønning, Second City Chamber Series concerts often combine well-known works of the classical masters with the lesser-known works of modern composers. This deliberate, artistic combination of the old and the new creates a unique and stimulating musical experience.
