CMA Chamber Music on Main is a critically acclaimed chamber concert series. In these intimate concerts, music and art blend together to create an unforgettable evening.

New Artistic Director
Andrew Armstrong

Fans of CMA Chamber Music on Main are already familiar with Armstrong from his performances in the series. Not only is he already part of the CMA family, but he and former artistic director Edward Arron have been working and performing together for 20 years. Armstrong was personally recommended by Arron for leadership of the CMA Chamber Music on Main series, and we are thrilled to see his vision for chamber music in Columbia.
