    Welcome to the “hidden jewel” of Reading’s cultural life, our 72nd season of chamber music concerts. The Friends of Chamber Music of Reading seeks to foster chamber music of the highest caliber, and to make these achievements of the human spirit accessible to persons young and old throughout the greater Reading community. As always, we will present our offerings at no charge to the public. We cannot do this without the support of our friends — we gratefully accept all donations.
