2O19 - 2O2O (33rd) CONCERT SEASON

The Sierra Chamber Society proudly invites you to subscribe to its 2019-20 (33rd) concert season.  We will return to Grace Presbyterian Church, 2100 Tice Valley Blvd, Walnut Creek, across from the old Jewish Community Center, just around the corner from Rossmoor.

As always, you can look forward to both familiar and surprising works. In its 33rd season, The Sierra Chamber Society welcomes back our enduring friends from the San Francisco Symphony, and distinguished guests, including the acclaimed Telegraph String Quartet, winners of the 2016 International Naumberg competition, and the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble.

Just to highlight a couple of entries in this exciting season:  There will be two SCS premieres:  In October 2019, a new work by program annotator and composer Joseph Way, heralding the first appearance of a tuba in our 33 year history! Then on March 15, 2020, Contrapassos for voice and string quartet a SCS commission from eminent American composer Robert Sirota ( ) with lyrics by SCS director and pianist Stevan Cavalier, performed by the Telegraph String quartet with the phenomenal soprano/ mezzosoprano Abigail Fischer, described by the NY Times as “Luminous,” by Timeout NY as “Spellbinding” and as “Sumptuous” by the Boston Globe. (

The SCS will continue to offer FLEX TICKETS:  Although your tickets will be dated as usual, you will be able to use any number of your season’s tickets at any concert, seats permitting.  Use them one at a time, all at one performance, or in any combination.  And, of course, if you can’t attend, giving your tickets to friends is a wonderful way to share your enthusiasm for the Sierra Chamber Society.

As always, Season Subscribers enjoy a substantial discount.  In addition, we rely on our SEASON SUBSCRIBERS to sustain us through each season.  I hope you’ll become one of them as we begin our 33rd year together! 

Finally, please forgive the reminder that DONATIONS are vital to our survival.  In addition to making a personal donation, if your employer has a matching gift program, your donation could be doubled.  Finally, you can help to ensure the Sierra Chamber Society’s legacy by making us a part of your estate planning.  If you would like to know more about these options, please inquire at and a board member will contact you.
